Segal convicted! Ryan's files released! Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

It's too bad we don't have newsboys hawking papers on the streetcorner like in the 40s, because this afternoon would be a huge day for Illinois politics.

The jury convicted Mickey Segal on all counts today. Now. . will he flip and turn on any of the many powerful pols that he played with?

Jack Ryan's having a media availability right now at the Hilton with all his unsealed files available for review. What is in those files? When Rich Miller put up some docs a week or so before the primary (for like 30 minutes) I got a chance to read them. Are they true? Is it possible for any human being to resist the temptation to become an absolute gossip hound and pounce on every juicy detail. So far, I've failed miserably. I can't *wait* to read these things! It's so unfair. . .people who step forward to run for public office should be celebrated and not punished . . . but I can't help it.

And this is my Jack Ryan line:

You have to really question the judgment of anyone who at one time was married to Jeri Ryan, and now, for whatever reason, is not.
