Notes
First thoughts, running arguments, stories in progress

The failure of a historic transplant: Doctors at the Cleveland Clinic announced that the first uterus transplant in the U.S. has failed. The 26-year-old recipient suffered a sudden complication after receiving the organ last month, and doctors were forced to remove it. Other nations have tried the experimental technique; in Sweden, five healthy babies were born to mothers who had received uterus transplants.

The Volkswagen fallout: Volkswagen’s top U.S. executive, Michael Horn, is leaving the German company “to pursue other opportunities effective immediately.” Horn, who has worked there for 25 years, testified before Congress last year about the illegal software installed in nearly 600,000 cars in the U.S. that were built to circumvent EPA emissions standards.

The presidential race: Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will debate tonight in Florida, a day after Sanders’s big upset win in the Michigan primary, and just days before Florida voters head to the polls to cast their ballots. We’ll be watching.
