Morning Cup

A delightfully frigid morning! And what better a day to have off, this "President's Day" holiday! Back from my morning run/workout here in Polar City, I settled down with lappie, coffee and seed catalog.

I had the busiest of weekends, but today a wonderful sense of accomplishment, as I completed EVERYTHING on my to-do list and then some! Today shall be no different: I am forging ahead, writing And, for those of you on the net either blogging professionally or perhaps seeking to turn that blog into a commentator's cove or pundit's palace, Demian Farnworth has posted an article on copyblogger that has your number: In "Why Hunter S. Thompson Would’ve Loved Author Rank (And Why You Should, Too)" you will learn why Google’s new algorithm — Author Rank — should be applauded by all writers (not just Hunter S. Thompson). It seems that Google is going to put the writer front and center by making the historical quality of an author essential to ranking content. If you are one of those people who want the truth quickly, go here.

Heard it on the radio ::: Mindy McCready, the 37-year-old country music star and mother of two, was found dead Sunday, after an apparent self-inflicted gunshot to the head. If you are a prayerful soul, say some for this one.

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.

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.
