US Appeals Court rejects ex-Gov. Ryan's appeal--prison almost certain

The train pulls out at Kankakee....Steve Goodman, "City of New Orleans." And that train, metaphorically speaking, is pulling out of George Ryan's hometown of Kankakee a week from today. The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the former Illinois governor's request to stay out of prison while his appeal process runs its course. Ryan's only hope, and its a slim one, is if the US Supreme Court steps in on the Republican's behalf.

In my opinion, you can put it on your timetable: George Ryan will be taking that train to the Federal Prison Camp in Duluth, Minnesota. It's over.
