Another appeal by former Illinois governor George Ryan has been denied.  The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today Ryan couldn't be released early from his six-and-a-half-year prison sentence.  Ryan's lawyer, ex-Governor James Thompson, calls the decision disappointing.  Ryan could appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, but Thompson isn't sure that will happen.  Ryan is in prison for racketeering and fraud.
