Thanks For Nothing

I was always intrigued by the ending lyric of the Jefferson Airplane's "Let Me In"...

It fits quite well here. Thanks for nothing, facebook schnooks!

It also fits well here:


And in the same newspaper, a fellow dies trying to "save" a kitty. The dude fell out of the tree. The cat would likely have come down on his own. If you must get him down, call a firefighter or somebody who knows how to wield a ladder. RIP Good Samaritan!

Seems to me there's been an awful lot of unnecessary dying going on - from the NFL player who killed his girlfriend then himself, to the two local Shen kids who died in a horrific Northway crash. Slow down, be thankful for every minute you are alive. The next minute could be your last. There's an old African proverb that goes something like "you can leave your house in the morning, but you may never come back that night." Think.

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.
