Post #6201

I had quite the busy St. Patty's day! Hope yours was cool!

First, my neighbor and I went a 0530 morning run in the bone-chilling cold, then we had a homemade breakfast - next, church services across the river. By 10, we were ready for brunch - another homemade affair, and quite tasty I might add!

Made it back to Albany just around 3; we stopped for 50 cent Ice Cream cones at Stewart's and picked up the Sunday Times Union, which has a preview of the "new" Times Union - a smaller paper from a modern printing press. I astounded a couple of folks at Stewart's who didn't know the Sunday TU comes WITH a TV Guide - but only if you buy it at the store! I saw more than one person spirit a TV Guide away - and hopefully they'll cancel Sunday delivery (unless the paper will now icnlude a TV Guide, which I think I read somewhere that's what they're planning to do!) I worked on my book for a while, then it was off to a friend's home for traditional Corned Beef, Cabbage and Soda bread with a little Irish Coffee!

At 7 we caught 60 Minutes' Lara Logan interview w/twitter creator Jack Dorsey - who may one day run for NYC Mayor a la Bloomberg. More fascinating was the bit about the app square, allowing merchants to accept card payments via cellphone!

So right now I am updating my blogs, then settling down to watch Argo. Whew! And I hear upstate NY has SNOW on the way for Monday night! I'll keep ya posted!

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.
