The all aboard Christmas Eve open line

Posted By on Tue, Dec 24, 2013 at 5:06 PM


What can I say? I still hear the bells and love the imagery of Polar Express.

The family did take in "Dallas Buyer's Club" this afternoon, not exactly Christmas fare, I guess. I liked it.

News? Not much:

* OBAMACARE LEEWAY: More flexibility offered by the government on signups. From CNN:

The Obama administration is offering help to people who, because of technical problems, miss a December 24 deadline to finish signing up for Obamacare.

A posting on says: "Tell our customer service representative that you've been trying to enroll and explain why you couldn't finish by the deadline. They can tell you what you can do to finish your enrollment and still get covered for 2014."

The agency responsible for overseeing earlier issued a statement saying that people who don't start the signup process by December 24 will have to wait until February for insurance coverage.

Check in tomorrow, when I can post Gene Lyons' take on "Duck Dynasty." Good stuff about this embarrassing bunch.

* FATAL SHOOTING: Little Rock police say a 26-year-old man was ]fatally shot near 15th and Adams this afternoon. No suspect in custody yet, Fox 16 says.
