    • A lasting legacy: Medlen's death spurred NHRA safety gains

      GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — John Medlen remembers his son's final seconds like they were his first steps. Eric Medlen inched his dragster to the starting line and waited for the signal. John, also his son's crew chief, made a couple of routine checks, looked in Eric's eyes, gave him a thumbs-up and pounded on the hood twice. "Neither one of us realized he had a little less than three seconds to live," John said. Ten years after Eric's fatal practice run at Gainesville Raceway, home to one of professional drag racing's premier events, John is still dealing with the demons that come from burying a child. Eric's death became a defining moment for NHRA, mostly because of the way John reacted to it and

      Shortly after House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) unveiled the Republican health-care plan on March 6, President Trump sat in the Oval Office and queried his advisers: “Is this really a good bill?” And over the next 18 days, until the bill collapsed in the House on Friday afternoon in a humiliating defeat — the sharpest rebuke yet of Trump’s young presidency and his negotiating skills — the question continued to nag at the president. Even as he thrust himself and the trappings of his office into selling the health-care bill, Trump peppered his aides again and again with the same concern, usually after watching cable news reports chronicling the setbacks, according to two of his advisers: “Is

"[Bannon] has told the president to keep a s--- list on this," one official said.
