Reporting with Natasha Korecki

As the jury is brought in for instructions, Patti Blagojevich is sitting in the front row, knitting.

Over a break, Sam Adam Jr., who turns 38 today, said he's lost 32 pounds since May 1. He got on the scale yesterday, he said.

"My dad and I don't eat lunch," he said.

Someone suggested he celebrate his birthday with a cheeseburger.

"I want to keep it off," he said, running a hand over his suit.

natasha, you're the best!
hang in there, this circus is almost over :)

What is with the special treatment? Knitting needles are definitely not allowed in a Court House!

Maybe Mrs. B was knitting her husband a orange jumpsuit.
