Hey folks, sorry for the radio silence this weekend — nearly the entire editorial staff was out of town/out of pocket. We aim to make this blog an addictive spot. Apologies for leaving y'all without your fix.

And speaking of Obamacare enrollment, I highly recommend Charles Ornstein of ProPublica on how to evaluate the law's successes and failures as all of these numbers roll in.

The open enrollment deadline is midnight tonight. Record traffic continues, with more than 2 million visits to healthcare.gov (through 3 pm today) and more than 840,000 calls (thorough 4 pm). 

Or if you're sick of Obamacare coverage, just head over to CNN, which is leading with the breaking news on fishing equipment and dead jellyfish

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
