Fitz Does Radio

Pat Fitgerald, the guy who successfully prosecuted Scooter Libby on felony counts of obstruction of justice, perjury, and making false statements to federal investigators, did a radio show the other day produced by NPR and Chicago Public Radio called "Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me!". Pat was interviewed by host Peter Sagal. Mighty funny, it was. AP (07.21.07):
"At one point, Sagal questioned Fitzgerald about his personal life, including the daily drive from his home on the city's north side to his offices in downtown.

'So,' Sagal asked, 'how do you feel about commuting?'

As the audience burst out laughing, Fitzgerald stared at Sagal with a slight smirk and quipped, 'I don't mind driving.'"

Fitzgerald grilled on scooters, mum on Scooter

As a parting gift, "(t)he show's staff gave him a kid's red scooter with a note engraved on it: 'To Patrick Fitzgerald, USA. This one will stay where you put it.'"

Exquisite, as they say. Bet that stays prominently displayed in his office forever.
