Your favorite correspondent has crossed the equator and the International Date Line, pressing deep into South Pacific. We'll spend time on Ulolu, a lovely piece of he Navigator Islands -- better known as Samoa -- Pago Pago, Bora Bora, Papeete and other stops in the land of James Michener.
I was stationed in the South Pacific during the Vietnam war. All these ports will be new to me.
What this means is that I am now in your future. So, I bring you the breaking news of your tomorrow:
1. FLASH: Obamacare website still down.
2. Not everyone can keep the health care plan they liked. Period.
3. Only people with rocks in their head will give a Social Security Number to Healthcare.gov. The administration was reckless to go live with the website knowing it could be insecure on Oct. 1. Few will trust them on Dec. 1.
That's the future from here. Over and out.
