    Yes, comedian Al Franken also sees the writing on the wall. We can only hope that in 2014 the good people of MN don't re-elect this comedian.

    Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) says he would be open to a brief delay in the individual mandate if the problems with HealthCare.gov aren't fixed by the end of the month, according to Minnesota Public Radio.

    "I think then we have to consider extending the deadline for the mandate, but let’s hope that doesn't happen," Franken told MPR.

    Franken has so far been relatively quiet about potential changes to the health-care law, but he now joins a growing group of Senate Democrats in seats that could be targeted by the GOP in 2014 who are speaking up on the issue.

    The brake lights on my car were stuck on (permanently illuminated) the other night, even with the ignition off. I thought it was going to be an expensive brake fault, but I discovered I had dislodged the brake light switch from its mounting with my size elevens. For the uninitiated, the brake light switch (which causes the brake lights to illuminate) is located near the top of the brake pedal, so, if you have a problem with your brake lights, make sure you check this switch first.

    This happens sometimes.

    Yeah, I couldn't believe they stayed on, even with the ignition off and the car locked. If I hadn't fixed it, it would have just drained the battery, although, as a last resort, I would have taken the earth lead off the battery.
