Rainy Day... Holiday Weekend

Here I am on a Friday morning, planning out my day. The sudden early hot humid early preview of summer is now over. Here in New York we are in for a couple of days of rain and coller temperatures. The TV weatherdude seems to think we'll hit 70 on Memorial Day. Yes, I'll be at the bbq Monday, grilling away. It's a thanksgiving day for me, a day to remember the men and women who fought and died for our freedoms, freedoms that are being pulled out from under us.

By the time Tuesday rolls around there's no telling what new material might have hit the news fan. I'm glad Anthony Weiner has decided to run for Mayor here in New York City. If anyone is the poster child for 'we are only human' it is he.

I keep running into people who are worried about the coming of Obamacare. I keep hoping that something will be done to ease the financial burden on American students (UAlbany is gearing up a new 'fast track'program that looks very promising) who are being victimized by greedy colleges - it all leads back to the big banks and the fat cats and those we call the one per cent.

Well, I have errands to run, places to go and people to meet. I'll be working on my writings throughout the holiday weekend. My smartphone will keep me connected to the digital world, which as soon as I upload this post, will be going on the back burner 'til tuesday.

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!

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.
