    I am surprised, not because I didn't think Ryan was guilty, but because there were a couple of problems with the jury in recent weeks.  I half expected the judge to declare a mistrial.

    To go back a bit, I was shocked that Ryan was even indicted at all.  This may be oversimplifying a bit, but it was played up big in the Chicago media: the prosecutors got a very key Ryan aide to turn on him--which really set things in motion.  

    Fitz's office...have faith.  This George Ryan thing took a long time to get rolling, but here we are with a conviction.
