You readers who have lived in the Washington area since the 1970s will remember the frigid winters back then. They lasted for months and dumped foot after foot of snow. The biggest lakes in the area froze solid — so solid that parents let their children play hockey on them. And the C&O Canal was a speed skater's dream — a 20-mile sheet of ice from Georgetown to Violette's Lock in Potomac.
Sen. Mike Lee argued Sunday that "any high school civics student can tell you" President Obama is stretching his executive authority by ameliorating the effects of his health care law with numerous tweaks and delays to its mandates on employers and individuals.
The man who appeared before Congress last week to explain the security pitfalls of HealthCare.gov shows just how easy it was to penetrate the website.
Carlee Soto, little sister of a teacher who died protecting her students in the Newtown school shooting, said she believes the country will pass stricter gun control measures in the future, even though nothing has been done in the year since the shooting.

"Clearly something is not working in the GOP and hasn't since its nervous breakdown caused by George W. Bush and exacerbated by the political consulting classes. The only part of the GOP that makes sense now is the tea party movement," Craig Shirley — a Ronald Reagan biographer and presidential historian — tells Inside the Beltway.
So how many people actually have signed up for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act? Uh-h-h-h, no one seems to know. In the past week, President Obama and officials within his administration avoided answering the trillion-dollar question by either claiming the numbers weren't available yet or that they had no access to the data.
After a week of ongoing glitches, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Sunday defended the online rollout of Obamacare's health insurance exchanges and promised the bugs would be worked out.
