WASHINGTON -- President Obama is no lip-biting, tear-streaking, chin-trembling apologist.
The rollout of the Affordable Care Act, more popularly known as Obamacare, has become the most outrageous exercise in "I didn't know, don't blame me" that could be imagined. Meanwhile, the online registration system continues to fail, and now it's revealed that people trying to sign up for Medicaid are experiencing some of the same enrollment problems as those attempting to register for private insurance. Were it not so pathetic, the entire matter would be laughable, even as representatives of the administration continue to portray it as little more than minor glitches.

I went to Scott Park for a walk last week and was pleasantly surprised to find the road into the park and the parking near the tennis courts had been repaired. As I walked around the park, I noticed evidence that other maintenance and repairs are in progress.

It should be noted that these areas are city property with county oversight for operation.

• When Blockbuster started its video rental stores in the 1980s, it was a marvel of technology -- movies available immediately, with a wide choice. Dish Network, which bought the company out of bankruptcy in 2011, announced last week it would close all remaining company-owned stores, finalizing a signal change in how people get their entertainment. Streaming video and other more modern technologies have made the video rental business obsolete. Indeed, we live in a changing world.
Contrary to the opinion of most people, schools have always had to serve all types of people. In fact, I remember a lawyer and legislator who was appalled when I suggested that drivers' licenses be taken from young people who broke the law instead of having them pick up trash when their parents could not or, wisely, would not pay their fines.
