Anybody else get that nasty flu bug that’s going around? The wife and kids had it on Christmas, then I got it New Year’s Eve. The plus side is that I’ve lost about 10 pounds so far in 2018, way ahead of schedule.
It’s nasty my friends. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
Happy new year, everyone. A question for fellow lobbyists: Were you, too, inundated with IL SOS “anti-sex harassment training” emails in the wee hours of Jan. 1, each one proclaiming training deadlines of Jan. 1?
I wonder if Jim Harbaugh is in the hunt for the Bears job. He’s a Super Bowl coach, offense-minded, who’s had success coaching up young players.
If Jim gets the offer, he might want to jump before he’s pushed. Big Blue Nation ain’t happy with his 1-5 record vs. Michigan State and Ohio State. And both games are on the road next year.

======IL SOS “anti-sex harassment training” emails===
I got six e-mails at 12:38am. I figured someone had too much champagne.===
7 emails all at 12:39 AM. Word is there was a glitch in the system. An in-house I know got 24 of them, many for contracts that they no longer employ. SOS is supposed to send out clarifying emails in a day or two I hear.
WHile Capt Fax was lolling around there is a small sign GovJunk has discovered his own starvation plan for colleges & universities has done damage. Tragic, but typical of Here some tweets…
GovJunk discovers his university starvation plan is impactin’ our path to future prosperity
Too many engineering & tech seeds BORN & BUILT in Illinois leave for the two coasts. If we could GROW them here, on the “third coast,” we’ll harvest the economic benefits.

•Did you know University of Illinois graduates more engineers than MIT, Stanford and Cal Tech combined? And that 10% of the nation’s computer science degrees are awarded here? #IllinoisProud

Here’s the one thing I can guess - Tregg Duerson has a financial background.
By pulling out he can run as a 3rd Party candidate for Assessor against Berrios if he wins the primary.
Previously a 3rd party candidate would have to file a full slate, but that was struck down by the 7th Circuit.
Interestingly just by filing his Democratic petitions he can’t run as an independent, but the only people blocked from running as third party candidates are people who were on a primary ballot and lost.
By withdrawing Duerson does’t risk that happening.
With his name and the fact he could get blacks, Republicans and reform-minded white Democrats voting for him - he would beat Berrios
Day 4 flu. I think i got it from an infected email. Chicken soup and pbj for festive new years. Coughing so much it feels like cracked ribs. Hopefully, prescription theraflu will help. 25 people in prompt care, almost all for flu. Dont wait to see doc.
Wonder where rauner spent the holidays, but i assume thats a state secret. Probably a working vacay, devoted to the budget. Or hanging w other rich.
