Developments in the Miller/Cooper case have come fast and furious since the Supreme Court's action earlier this week. Focus has once again returned to the role of Sun-Times columnist Robert Novak, with many asking why he seems to be allowing his fellow journalists to go to jail, a charge he flatly denies. Now some S-T internecine conflict emerges, as Novak's colleague Carol Marin says she can't understand why he won't speak up. The other Chicago connection to this debacle is US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, another figure about whom people have been asking questions; he is profiled today in the Wall Street Journal, as the Trib's editorial page wonders if he may be on a "fishing expedition."
