But For A Wrinkle In Time...

Once upon a time, many Decembers ago, there was a country whose beloved leader was slain. A healing HAD to happen. It came in the form of music when a foursome of British pop stars known collectively as The Beatles went viral in the United States. The rest is history. Click the image to read my original post from 2009.

Some information circulating of late is just a little incomplete.Had JFK lived, the Beatles would have never made it outside of Europe and the UK & Territories. The U.S. void after Dallas needed desperate filling and who knew a simple phonograph record flown to an American DJ in WASHINGTON DC would flip the country's mood and trigger a counterculture + revolution of which we are still feeling the fallout...

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.
