Miracle in the Making? Here's CNN's story about the teenager who got a heart-lung transplant of the wrong blood type. Seems the doctors and nurses at Duke screwed up big time. But, like being down 20 late in the fourth quarter, they might be about to make a miraculous comeback. I hope the girl does, too.

I can't resist. The surgeon said, "I assumed that after providing Jesica's name to the organ procurement organization ... that the organs were compatible." You know, when you ASSUME something, you make an ASS out of U and ME. Never more true than here. The hospital says that it has now "implemented safeguards to prevent such errors in the future." That's reassuring. You mean, there were no such safeguards before?

Who wants to cap damages as to this poor girl?
