Yesterday, we let you know that Cook County Board Prez John Stroger had been hospitalized. Turns out, the 76-year-old diabetic, a survivor of both a quadruple bypass and testicular cancer, had suffered a major stroke. Stroger is resting at Rush and as of now, is still in the race for re-election against challenger Forrest Claypool.
