You can skip TV and the movies and just go sit in the courtroom trial of former Governor Ryan, as the stars have been parading to the witness stand. According to the Chicago Tribune here, the defense witnesses have included "Hollywood actor Mike Farrell, who played B.J. Hunnicut on TV's 'M.A.S.H'" and Sister Helen Prejean, who authored best-selling movie "Dean Man Walking." The defense has also managed to secure testimony from "U.S. Attorney Edward E. McNally, chief federal prosecutor in the Southern District of Illinois." (See CNN here) But the most important witness for the defense may be Ryan's doorman, a witness who will be able to provide direct knowledge that Ryan is an honest and caring man.
