Find A Baby Sitter

Now here's something, that, if it catches on, could be really big. The saving grace of this babysitting app is that it operates on a "local microgrid" so that available babysitters can easily be verified to weed out potential child molesters and kiddie porn afficianados. How many times have you wished you had a reliable sitter, only to find out weeks or months later that there was an excellent high school or college girl or stay-at-home Mom a block or two away that could have cared for your tyke(s)?

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.
