March 21, 2010—a day which will live in infamy

Yesterday was one of the most active blogging days in VFR’s history, matching the fact that it was one of the most consequential days in recent American history. The unfolding events and rumors, with their numerous, Perils-of-Pauline reversals, came one after another, all day long, and I was on top of it all the way. Between 2:36 a.m. and 8:36 p.m., I posted 19 entries, probably a one day record.

The oddity of the blog format is that the blog entries appear in reverse chronological order. If you didn’t read the site yesterday and are interested in catching up, I would recommend that you start with the first entry for March 21 on the health care issue, “Health care horror update,” posted at 2:36 a.m., and then read up the page from there in chronological order.

UPDATE: The above instructions became useless once the entries from March 21 rolled off the main page. There are now two ways to access the March 21 entries.

You can go to the single page entry which includes all the entries for the week of March 21, 2010 and read from the bottom of the page, since the entries are listed in reverse chronological order and the firest entry for March 21 is at the bottom of the page.

Or, perhaps easier, because it doesn’t involve reading upward (but does involve clicking on the link for each entry), you can access the below chrolological list of the March 21 entries on the health care debate:
