And so here we go, embarking on an overhaul of a something so vast, so complicated, and so vital, yet we have no idea how it will work. Every week seems to bring some news of delays or recently discovered dysfunction. 

Washington D.C. is probably the only place in America where something this uncertain could be touted as a success.

    The recent decision of ProMedica's Board of Trustees to enter into a transfer agreement with Capital Care Network, Toledo's last remaining abortion facility, just doesn't make sense.
