ST. PAUL (AP) -- Gov. Jesse Ventura came back to work Wednesday -- and back to his tightlipped treatment of reporters -- after a hospital stay for a blood clot in his lung.
Ventura arrived at the Capitol about 12:45 p.m. He had "nothing" to say as he strode past reporters, up a flight of stairs and into his office.
The governor had been away from the Capitol more than a week and spent four days in the hospital.
Accompanied by a few security guards and first lady Terry Ventura, the governor walked at his regular gait and didn't show any signs of the pain that sidelined him. Ventura was to spend a few hours in office meetings Wednesday and had no public events scheduled.
