"The interest in comparing HealthCare.Gov to a lethal natural disaster is all the odder because the Bush years actually offer a ready analogue to Obamacare: Medicare Part D. Like Obamacare, Medicare Part D was a massive health-care expansion. Like Obamacare, it was administratively complex. Like Obamacare, the Web site didn’t work on launch. Like Obamacare, people who were supposed to be benefitting from the law found their plans upended and the supposedly superior alternatives inaccessible. Like Obamacare, the early months were, in the words of then-Majority Leader John Boehner, “horrendous.” … Medicare Part D eventually found its footing and today it’s a popular and successful program. Which is, perhaps, the reason the media is more interested in the Hurricane Katrina comparison: “The glitches get fixed and, after a year or two, the program fades into an efficient obscurity” is a less interesting story line then “failure that defines a presidency."

If you’re a woman, take the time to watch the documentary Pink Ribbons, Inc.

i find my cosmic insignificance reassuring
