Hey everybody, is that Otto Kerner?

No - just George Ryan's uncanny impersonation of him.

The White Sox are winning, the sun is shining, and life is grand in the Great State of Illinois.

George Ryan. Guilty. On all counts.

Not only did Ryan lose, but so did his attorney Dan Webb. Dan Webb of (former Governor) Jim Thompson's firm Winston & Strawn.

And they were beaten by US District Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald. I wonder if I. Scooter Libby was following this trial?

I wonder if Richie Daley was following the trial. The trial for his former patronage chief, Robert Sorich, kicks off in 3 weeks.

And going for the hat trick, was Rod Blagojevich keeping tabs?

On a side note, a news search on Google was very disappointing, only turning up local news (for me) stories: WBBM-TV CBS, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, the Waukegian (really? The Waukegian?)

A news search on Yahoo! was more gratifying:
Bloomberg
India Daily
And from a city that knows something about corruption: Cleveland
