Well a few things going on. Was at an event the other night where I got to hear both Rep. Tom Cross (R-Oswego) and Steve R. speak.

First Steve R. it was really nice to hear someone speak after an election that didn't have a trace of anger or bitterness. That was Steve, he came accross as truly happy just to have had the experience and it was good to see him still out speaking to groups. It seems that even people who have offices currently kind of go into hiding when they lose a primary or something for a higher office. I hope Steve does run for Governor when the time comes, he has my vote.

Tom Cross was the featured speaker at the event and spoke about a host of subjects including malpractice reform. You can guess what topic I am going to focus on.

Soon there will no neurosurgons south of Springfield in this state.
Soon there will no neurosurgons who treat head trama in Will County (300K people) and only one neurosurgon in the entire county.
Soon it will very hard to find an Ob/Gyn who delivers babies in Will County. To get more of an idea of the impact of this issue in Will County go here.

To see the 'Code Blue' Medical Liability Crisis Releif Plan go here (pdf).

I will be taking a closer look at the plan and offering my ill-informed opinion on it soon.
