    Annie posted: ...initially a mystery that was later revealed to be a hospitalization for severe depression and gastrointestinal problems.

    My guess is severe ulcerative colitis which is a horrific and depressing disease...

    ... extreme weight loss is not uncommon...

    ... if he's had an ostomy operation, the attendant adjustment problems could account for the long absence.

    Even if he croaks the dead voters will reelect him. It's the Chicago way.

    Fine, let them have the seat with no one voting, just keeps our majority larger. Hell I'd have gut problems if Jessie was my dad, can you imagine?

    After redistricting, I now live in the Illinois 2nd District. I'll be voting for the GOP candidate for the first time in many years.

    Just a thought... an opinion... a hunch... Wonder if he's really all that sick or could he be hiding out from the law for some particular reason? Stranger things have happened.
