Progress Updates2022-05-06T07:33:05-05:00

Our progress updates bring you the news filtered through the lens of outcomes. We ask: Has the event, action, or utterance changed anything?

If our editors do not agree that the event, action, or utterance has moved the needle of progress one way or the other, then it won’t be reported here.
