Reporting with Natasha Korecki

A small business owner who was just questioned by Judge James Zagel says his brother lives about six houses down from the Blagojevich home in Ravenswood Manor.

The man, who had a messy jury questionnaire because of a broken thumb, said he's nervous that he would be too anxious about his advertising business to be a good juror in the trial.

Internet is his major source of news. "Do you check it often?" Zagel asks. "It checks me," he replies, adding that it's "coming at" him all the time.

He wrote on his jury questionnaire that politicians "are not to be trusted."
