Aug. 26, 1883: The explosion of the Krakatoa volcano.
Apr. 15, 1912: The sinking of the Titanic.
May 6, 1937: The dirigible Hindenberg goes up in flames.
Oct. 1, 2013: The initial rollout of Obamacare.
And nobody should feel smug about it.
This isn’t an “I told you so” moment for any American. It’s costing hundreds of millions of dollars to fix. There are masses of people who are totally confused about their coverage — if they even have coverage.

Edison’s first successful light bulb followed 10,000 failures.
