  3. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:14 pm:

    Go Sox!
    Who’s he?


  4. - E town - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:15 pm:

    I figured this jacket might help me when I visit the Speaker and ask him when he is going to move on and let me take the reins!


  5. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:17 pm:

    “Does this bus go to ‘Cominski’ Park?”

    Mr. Lang, all the best on your 65th Birthday. OW


  6. - Yellow Dog Democrat - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:17 pm:

    Happy Birthday Worf!


  7. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:18 pm:

    Rep. Lang looks on…because when you’re “on” Medical Marijuana, people seem to look “on” a lot.


  8. - Wordslinger - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:19 pm:

    Sox new catcher?

    Second baseman?

    Left? Right?


  9. - Demoralized - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:19 pm:

    Lou Lang shows off his jacket which reminds him to put on socks every morning.


  10. - walker - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:19 pm:

    “Slots at Comiskey Park? Link’s on board.”

    (oops)


  11. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:20 pm:

    “Sir, the floor isn’t moving, you can let go of the wall… Sir…Sir’


  12. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:23 pm:

    Rep. Lang waits outside the. “Gas & Sip” for his new college buddies to bring him some Cheetos and a “Green” Slurpee after that delicious brownie he ate.


  13. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:26 pm:

    “He keeps talking to the statues with these glazed eyes…”


  14. - Western Ave. Doug - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:26 pm:

    I can’t believe Goldberg is on TV using Louis Cairo! Why did I leave the firm?


  15. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:30 pm:

    ===Left? Right?===

    Dude, have you seen his voting record?


  16. - Norseman - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:31 pm:

    During a casual discussion about the Speaker, Lou imitates Kevin Pollak imitating The Jack Nicholson line, “you can’t handle the truth.”


  17. - OneMan - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:31 pm:

    Is it just me or does it look like he is at an ice rink?


  18. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:32 pm:

    He is, OneMan.


  19. - John A Logan - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:32 pm:

    I thought George Castanza was a Yankees Fan…

  20. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:32 pm:

    After all the searching, the speculation, the guessing if he was real or not, Carl Lazlo is found, and he helped pass a bill making Medical Marijuana legal.


  21. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:40 pm:

    The exact moment Rep. Lou Lang realized he would never be Speaker.


  22. - Ginhouse Tommy - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:44 pm:

    I didn’t think that the Black Hawks needed help this bad. Tell Duncan Keith someones after his job. Go Sox.


  23. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:45 pm:

    Rich Miller @2:40 for the win!


  24. - Wordslinger - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:45 pm:

    Rich, so left field? They need help in those outfield corners.

    Another one:

    “Like many players from Cuba, Sox rookie of the year Jose Abreu may be older than he claims.”


  25. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:46 pm:

    “Whoa, I though I was throwing out the 1st Pitch. Now I’m confused.”

    (To himself) “Just roll with it…”


  26. - Precinct Captain - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:49 pm:

    The Chicago Tribune editorial board: Based on his birth year, work history, and government service, state Rep. Lou Lang will soon be getting Social Security, aka another government pension!


  27. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 2:57 pm:

    “Who owns the ‘Chiefs’?”


  28. - A guy... - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 3:06 pm:

    So Mr. Speaker, I’m here. I’ve got my double runners on, now what?


  29. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 3:08 pm:

    “This is the last time Staff gets to pick the ‘Bonding Exercise’…”


  30. - Under Further Review - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 3:16 pm:

    Owing to numerous requests for public appearances at White Sox related fan fests, birthday parties and bar mitzvahs, state legislator Lou Lang developed a profitable business sideline as an Eddie Einhorn celebrity impersonator.


  31. - Extended Care - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 3:35 pm:

    Happy Birthday Lou


  32. - Extended Care, Evanston - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 3:37 pm:

    Happy Birthday Lou!


  33. - Black Ivy - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 3:39 pm:

    Representative Lou Lang: I’ve achieved much in my 65 years - passage of a viable medical marijuana law, a 2005 Chicago White Sox World Series Championship,etc., but the Governor’s Office still escapes me…


  34. - John A Logan - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 3:42 pm:

    Skinny Jeans. A trend unknowingly begun by Rep. Lou Lang.


  35. - Dave Dahl - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 3:47 pm:

    OW 2:57: “Ownzzzz! Ownzzzz!”

    HB Leader !!


  36. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 3:50 pm:

    (Tips cap to - Dave Dahl -)

    “Caption?”

    “Happy Gilmore Turns 65!”


  37. - Ducky LaMoore - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 3:51 pm:

    Lou Lang Lou Lang Lou Lang. He’s so fine. Lou Lang Lou Lang Lou Lang.


  38. - anon - Wednesday, Nov 26, 14 @ 4:02 pm:

    I think colleagues on both sides of the aisle recognize Lou as one of the best and the brightest, whether they agree with him on everything or not.
