Two quick things:

First, I wanted to thank Mokurai for taking on the burden of posting daily updates on the ongoing saga of until things settle down over there (things are a bit crazy right now).

When you see his posts with "ACA Signups" in the title, please Rec them if you would do so for one of mine; consider him my surrogate for the moment, thanks! :)

Second, I just had to spill this one myself: Five minutes after getting off the phone with NPR (All Things Considered), my home line rang. My wife informed me "It's FOX News, should I hang up on them?"

I thought about it for a minute, then sighed and said "No, let me talk to them."

It was a very pleasant-sounding woman who first confirmed my identity, then invited me to appear on one of their stupid shows (I can't remember which one, frankly).

I politely declined (it's not her fault, after all, I assume she's some booking assistant) and asked them not to call my home number again.

Anyway, it's kind of a busy day.

Oh, yeah: My final Exchange-based QHP projection for midnight tonight: 6.9 - 7.0 Million.

I'll let Mokurai fill you in on the details later today, but I couldn't resist telling you guys the Fox thing personally...

UPDATE: I'll be on NPR's "All Things Considered" in half an hour (5pm eastern, rebroadcast at 7pm).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
