Life Is Short

This came across my email today. Things can and do happen right out of the blue. And remember, "good" things can also happen right out of that same blue.

Albany, New York, February 12, 2014– New Horizons Computer Learning Center of Albany is hosting a Staff vs. Chefs Chili Cook-off  to benefit Paul Sleasman and his family on Tuesday, February 25th from 11:30am to 1:30pm.  A minimum of $5 donation is requested as admission and New Horizons will match each donation up to $500.  All proceeds will go directly to the family to help offset medical costs as Paul battles stage 4 cancer. 

Paul Sleasman is a 37 year old, single father who was living a normal life with his son when a simple stomach ache sent him to the doctor.  That was on 12/10/13 and less than two weeks later, on Christmas Eve, Paul was given the diagnosis: Stage 4 Lung Adenocarcinoma that had spread to both his liver and brain. 
New Horizons of Albany considers it a responsibility to help out within the community. This story hits home for Jason Krolak, owner, as he grew up with Paul.

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.
