IT WAS about 3 1/2 years ago that then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said famously that "we have to pass the [health-care bill] so that you can find out what's in it. " The remark was ridiculed at the time, but Pelosi appears to have been on to something. In 2013, the core provisions of the Affordable Care Act - a/k/a "Obamacare" - are finally taking effect, and it appears as if Americans are just now learning what's in the bill. Some like what they're finding, while many particularly vocal folks do not. What's really going on with Obamacare?

TORONTO - It was early in the morning on Aug. 9, 1988 - usually a quiet time in the hockey world. Not so for Jay Greenberg, then the Daily News ' Flyers beat writer. Greenberg was one of the few sports writers in the world to sniff out "The Trade," which sent the greatest hockey player ever from Edmonton to Los Angeles. In fact, with the help of sources, Greenberg nearly nailed the exact specifications of the deal in that day's paper, hours before it was even consummated.

  Stating in part that "truth is a complete defense," a Philadelphia Common Pleas Court judge has dismissed a defamation lawsuit brought by attorney Richard A. Sprague against a former Daily News columnist who had written that the acclaimed lawyer had lied while representing his former friend, ex-State Sen. Vincent Fumo. Judge Lisa M. Rau also found that just because public figures might not like what they read about themselves, that is not always justification for a lawsuit.

GLADYS MARY SMITH was one of the best friends the Daily News and Inquirer ever had. For more than 20 years, Miss Polly, as she was affectionately known, delivered the newspapers in the West Philadelphia area with an unrivaled passion and dedication. Folks who lived near her home on Catharine Street would hear her car rev up at 3 or 4 a.m. on Sundays to handle the Sunday Inquirer. Those who knew her - and just about everybody did - would roll over and say, "There goes Miss Polly to deliver the papers.

WHEN THE Bulletin closed in 1982, it was a considerable blow to the McBride family. In fact, the family tried to keep it open as best they could. They demonstrated at the building at 30th and Market streets, even holding a candlelight vigil. Nothing worked, of course. The 135-year-old newspaper was doomed. The emotional attachment was a family affair. The late Bill McBride, who died in 1978, was a longtime Bulletin sportswriter, specializing in horse racing, and other family members worked there over the years.

TWO-TIME Pulitzer Prize-winner Bill Marimow was fired yesterday as editor of the Inquirer , just 18 months after he returned to the job. Publisher and company CEO Robert J. Hall said he made the decision because he and Marimow had butted heads about the direction of the newspaper. "I had to make a very difficult decision," Hall said. "I respect Bill as a journalist very much. . . . We were having some philosophical differences on decisions for moving the Inquirer forward and I decided to go a different way. " The battle between Marimow and Hall had been ongoing.

PHILADELPHIA'S City Hall can be a tough place to keep a secret. After 17 years in and around his local government, lobbyist John Hawkins must know that.

Charles Peruto Jr. - in whose bathtub she was found dead - also covered her six-year affair with a married man identified only as "M.B.," a nod to a character known as Mr. Big on TV's "Sex and the City.
