"Wishbone got nailed by a skunk!" my husband yelled as he rushed into the house straight to our upstairs bathtub a few Sundays ago. I had been leisurely reading Facebook.

Folks wondering what's really in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (federal health care reform) will have a chance to have their questions answered by someone who actually helped write it. A public forum Wednesday will feature Lauren Gilchrist, the assistant commissioner for health policy and reform for the Minnesota Department of Human Services. The forum begins at 7 p.m. at First Lutheran Church, 1100 E. Superior St. Gilchrist was once the top health care aide to Sen. Al Franken and worked directly on writing the Affordable Care Act.
