Glitch in the Matrix

Every new generation of the iphone, introduced, has more bugs than a Looney Tune. Or a coon dog watching an episode of Breaking Bad.

Google maps sent people to an airport runway.

The first people that buy a new technology get hosed. Costs more. Works less.

Like a 3-D television.

Two things are true about the Healthcare.gov Marketplace.

1. The rollout was unacceptable.

2. We’re a guinea pig generation suffering the reasonable growing pains associated with the implementation of a new and complex regulatory and technological system.

The Affordable Care Act likely won’t work well for us. That doesn’t mean that it won’t.

I own a Plasma TV.

Bright Side

Trust me, it wasn’t for lack of trying. To contract it, I engaged in all the traditional and recommended activities. But, apparently I’m impervious to mononucleosis. I mean a month off from shool?? I would have made it with Mrs. Fink and drank a bottle of baseball team back wash, for 30 straight days of Rocky IV and Sega Genesis.

Same with this whole government shutdown deal. As a federal employee, I’m sort of eyeing a little unpaid vacation. Like a snow day. Not a week or month. A couple days. Of course, my boss thinks I’ve been “shutdown” for years.

Unfortunately, I perform a lot of what they call “essential” constitutional functions, like web-surfing and email-checking and reading internal administrative memorandum about what might happen if we do shut down.  Stuff that can’t be ignored.

But, I’m just saying, government shutdown = more news raps.  You guys do the math.
