Tommie Harris needs a little time to think: "You just don't know how much having a child out of wedlock has weighed on me," he said. "When your own child doesn't live with you, when you have to go pick him up. … I mean the whole thing has really affected my professional life.

It was to the point where I was really getting sick to my stomach." [Chicago Tribune]
