#1 Nancy Ann attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, where her senior thesis was entitled "Uncle Sam, Hirohito, and Resegregation: The Tule Lake Segregation Center, 1943-1946." She was awarded a B.A. degree with highest honors and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and selected as a Phi Kappa Phi scholar. She was the first female president of the University of Tennessee student body and was a member of Delta Gamma. In 1978 Glamour magazine named her one of the year's top ten college women.

After graduating from Tennessee she enrolled in Harvard Law School, but interrupted her studies there when she was awarded a Rhodes scholarship. As a Rhodes scholar, she received a B.A. from Oxford in 1981. After returning to Harvard, she earned a J.D. degree in 1983.

She is married to Jason DeParle, a reporter for The New York Times.

[Unexpectedly!] DeParle has drawn criticism for her lucrative service on corporate boards after her tenure in the Clinton administration. reported that she was paid more than $6 million, and served as a director of half a dozen companies that faced federal investigations, whistleblower lawsuits and other regulatory actions. Many of these companies have a stake in the health care reform that she led.

#2 Using only O's and 1's in the coding process is so, I dunno, binary and implicitly racist. It was important to allow the other digits to participate equally in the coding process. Hey wait, why is this thing not working?

#3  In a speech in Boston on Wednesday, President Obama addressed criticism that he had broken his pledge that Americans would be able to keep their health insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act.

So, lied again.

Come on now you should expect a lie, it fits his meme.

#5 The Wapo article's title is:

"How political fear was pitted against technical needs"

Political fear wins every time. Especially in this administration.

#7 Both titles work for me. One can pass the WaPo editor's scrutiny, one can't...

#8 Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, Rahm Emanuel's brother has been making the rounds of the Sunday talk show programs. The design of ObamaCare has been attributed to him although this is doubtful. This Donk albatross has been on the shelf for a long time before being dusted off. Emanuel is brash, rude, interrupts constantly (seems to be a liberal inbred trait) and acts like his opinion is the only viable opinion on anything.
