Denny Jacobs reported to be in hospital

As brought to my attention by an alert Dopester, Rich Miller at the Capitol Fax Blog is reporting that former Senator Denny Jacobs is in the hospital. No further details are reported, but he says he will post further details later. We all hope that Denny is ok.

(The Dope was prevented from posting this earlier, due to Blogger again running slower than molasses in January. If any readers have any further info, please share it with us.)


*UPDATE* A very alert and helpful Dopester has reported that apparently Denny has suffered a mild heart attack and will be kept in the hospital overnight for observation. Further details as they appear.

*UPDATE 2* Another alert Dopester reports that no evidence of a heart attack was found, and speculation is that Jacob's hospitalization may be due to reaction to some prescription medications. He is expected to be released in the morning.

As a supporter of Denny Jacobs though many years I will pray for him. Keep us posted Dope.

Still nothing further at Capitol Fax. I will post any further info as soon as I receive it.
If anyone out there has any details, please post them.

the scoop is denny had a mild heart attack or other ailment, they're keeping him overnight in a springfield hospital for observation but big lifestyle changes are on the way

Just how do you suggest that I be "all over this" more than I have been?

I mean, you heard it here first, you've gotten further details here first. What are you complaining about?

Reports of a mild heart attack are not accurate. Sources confirm there was no heart attack, but perhaps a problem with the medication former Sen. Jacobs was taking at the time. He should be released in the morning.

Thanks Frampton, but like mike r I want to know: why isn't Dope all over Jacobs' medication lists? If Dope had purchased one of those little pill dispensers with days of the week printed on each flap, and dispensed Denny's medications in accordance with his physicians' instructions, then perhaps none of this would ever have happened!

Sometimes I find that sarcasm can be an effective debate tool.

..and it has the added benefit of pissing off those that are humor impaired. That's always satisfying.

I know, I know, it's not nice to pick on people so utterly defenseless and powerless.
I just thought that reporting that Denny was doing fine would really stick it to 'em, ya know?

Maybe dope should look at the dissenter response about medication and see what kind of medication the dissenter may be on to say such an odd thing about anyone... SHAME ON YOU DISSENTER.... That was downright nasty...

I fail to see anything the least bit shameful about dissenter's comment above. Sorry.
