The president, through his aides in a closed door meeting, signaled that the time for negotiations was over with rank and file Republicans who were meeting late at night on Capitol Hill to try to find common ground on the embattled package crafted by House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R Wis.).The move was a high risk gamble for the president and the speaker, who have invested significant political capital in passing legislation that would replace the 2010 Affordable Care Act.

Indie darling Lawrence of Belgravia, also of Felt and Go Kart Mozart, was the victim of very bad timing when his poptastic Summer Smash was banned by the BBC in 1997. The titular onomatopoeia was considered too much given the sad circumstances of Princess Diana’s death in a tunnel in Paris that summer.
