Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

What's more important? Affordable higher education or health care coverage?
That's the question lawmakers are weighing as they consider controversial legislation that would eliminate New Jersey's requirement that all college students have health insurance in order to attend class.
College officials are pushing lawmakers to kill the law because the implementation of Obamacare is driving up the cost of the basic health insurance plans offered to uninsured students by their schools. The jump in premiums — from a few hundred dollars this school year to more than $1,700 next year in some cases — could force some students to drop out.
Most students use their their parents' plans, which cover children up to age 26. But a large number, especially low-income students and older county college students, purchase low-cost health care plans through their colleges to comply with the state law.
Those minimal-coverage plans, which currently cost $100 to $600 for bare-bones coverage at some schools, are being phased out as the country prepares to switch over to the new federal healthcare regulations championed by President Obama.
Raising the price of a basic health care insurance plan by $1,000 to $1,500 more a year will be enough to keep some students from attending college, school officials testified at the assembly hearing.
Hey, that individual mandate's a bitch, ain't it?
The poor dears. They rallied for Obama. The believed his mendacity. They never bothered to learn the sad truth — exhorbitant premiums for young people isn't a bug, it's a feature. Using the young and healthy to subsidize the sick and elderly is a central tenet of Obamacare's Marxist mandate. From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.
You've got the ability. Geezers got the need. Pay up suckas.
