    "I think Congressman Jackson and his office and his family would be well-advised to advise his constituents of his condition. He's obviously facing a health problem. People get sick. And when people get sick, they miss work. Everybody in America understands that but I think the family would be well-advised to give his constituents as much information as is appropriate." - Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland, talking about the mysterious illness that has sidelined Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Illinois, since late May. Jackson, the son of the Rev. Jesse Jackson, hasn’t explained why he’s missed so much work, and statements from his spokesmen have been vague.
