attorney general collapses during speech

The Washington Post has breaking news about U.S. Attorney General Mukasey:
Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey collapsed last evening while delivering a speech to a prominent legal group and was rushed to George Washington University Hospital.

Mukasey remained at the hospital overnight for observation but a Justice Department spokesman said Mukasey had strong vital signs and was "in good spirits" after the incident, which occurred at an annual Federalist Society gathering. A person who attended the dinner said Mukasey was visibly shaking and perhaps slurring his words before he fell to the floor.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Mukasey and his family tonight. We're hoping for a speedy recovery.
