Conrad Black, whose shadow darkened the Chicago Sun-Times with his theft and draining of every
needed resource to turn a quality newspaper, will stay in the slammer.
An Associated Press story reports today that Justice John Paul Stevens has turned down Black's request to be freed from a
Florida prison while he appeals his fraud conviction to the high court.
This is good news to all of us who suffered under his "proprietorship," and would keep him in the federal pen for more than the six years he got for gutting a valuable community institution.
