Click on headline for complete story/with a link to story on Chicken Nuggets and CM First Rant of the Day

Kentucky's super smooth roll out of had so few problems, it's hard to imagine that out there in tech-impaired Rest of America (states w/o a Governor Steve Beshear or second best to him), the inauguration of Affordable Health Care has been a bit bumpy, But despite those problems, the savings in cost has been remarkable for even those outlanders, when they persevere a few hours.

The President is getting the brunt of the attention for the introductory and momentary problems for the historic improvement in Health Care delivery. The Atlantic is even taunting him - sort of - as (Click to:) Barack Obama, Insurance Salesman in Chief in a story subtitled: "The president finally acknowledged the deep problems with, but rather that explain or dwell on them, he urged Americans to keep trying."

Also, the Epicurean Kentuckian would also recommend another link - if you are totally un-squeamish and have a cast iron stomach - a look at another The Atlantic article. Click to: Look Inside a Chicken Nugget/ Doctors at the University of Mississippi dissected two chicken nuggets, looked at them under a microscope, and were "astounded.". It could affect how readily one gives in to the kiddies' demands for faux real chicken.

Both stories raise the issue: Isn't too much we see, read, and hear about about mastery of Wordster Trickery: When your kid wants trickster term "Chicken Nuggets" - What if he/she were asked, "Are you going to have some "Fried Make-Your-Butt Big Pink Slime Nuggets"? Might reduce the nutritional misadventures.

I actually know (at least) one local *restaurant which hand cuts chicken nuggets from beautiful, fresh-from-the-market chicken breasts. The difference in taste is incredible. The difference in healthiness is bigger, still.

And it's been stranger still: "Affordable Health Care Act" gets somewhat more far more favorable opinions than "Obamacare" - and it's the same thing! - EW.

*Restaurant - This isn't an ad, so I'm not going to tell you which restaurant(s) does/do it that way. I'll let you find that answer for yourself. . - EW
