Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us 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). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site 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 us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

I feel much satisfaction that Obama did not take a vacation in responding to Sandy as that abysmal imbecile Bush did in responding to Katrina. I was living in southeastern Louisiana at the time in 2005 and there was no response or rescue or clean up until about 3 weeks had elapsed in Katrina’s aftermath. Obama can be very justly be proud of his efforts to help all of those who have suffered under Sandy’s savage sway.

    You’re totally full of it. I was living in Lafayette. Katrina was a much geater destructive hurricane than Sandy. The problems in responding were largely due to those two incompetents in office at the time, Gov. Blanco and Mayor Nagin of New Orleans. Both Democrats.

paul delano says:

That large segment of Obama supporters also known as the Looting Publicis doing their best to get New York back on its feet.
