Well, knock me over with a feather: The Obama administration is unable to provide, on time, insurance choices for small businesses to offer employees (“Business health option put on hold,” April 2).

I certainly understand the “operational challenges” faced by the administration in trying to figure out all the details of the plan it fought to get through Congress. Knock me over again: The Star Tribune put this story on the back page of the news section (but it’s important to note, on Page A2, that our president needs to work on his jump shot).

One more feather, please: The pastel-green article positioned right next to this one highlights the woes of White House workers taking days off without pay (imagine that, if you can), scaling back on travel and supplies because of the “partisan budget stalemate.”

I am so sore from being knocked over by each of these surprising news stories. I just hope that sarcasm is a covered medical condition.
