D-Day

Early Saturday, prior to heading down to Chinatown, I attended a D-Day Remembrance at the Holiday Inn in Latham. What's that? You don't know what D-Day is? Then you probably don't know what or when Pearl Harbor Day is either. Do you know the anniversary of the murder of US President John F. Kennedy? If you answered no, you are probably anywhere from to 10 to 30 years old. It's sad that so much American History vanishes from textbooks and memories.The D-Day Invasion was a military milestone that took place on June 6th, 1944. Why don't you go ahead and Google that? My good friend, US Congressman Chris Gibson was the keynote speaker at the event, which was organized by Mr. Frank DeSorbo. I bumped into a couple of old friends at the event: Jim Morell, the President of Albany Broadcasting Company, and Capital District Radio Legend Joe Condon.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
