    Thanks for tuning in for my quarantine concert. This next tune goes back to my debut album in the 90’s…

  3. - Snapple Lady - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 11:11 am:

    Kwame style isopropyl conservation?

    “He’s just sitting there. Said he’s waiting to hear back from Madigan, but we told him, the Speaker has no computer, let alone Zoom on it. So, he sits there, from 7 am to 7pm… i don’t think he blinks…”


  7. - Donnie Elgin - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 11:19 am:

    Don’s video work is much better than his letter writing to Congress.


  8. - Oswego Willy - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 11:20 am:

    “Yes, welcome Don from Oak Park, your question for Leader Durkin’s virtual town hall”


  9. - Oswego Willy - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 11:29 am:

    “Don? Are your speakers on, Don… Mr. President… Don… can you hear us… is he frozen… I think he’s frozen… well, text him… No, he’s frozen… he can’t see that?… Don, you’re frozen… how can he not see that… send him another invite… no, tell him to turn the whole thing off… Don, it’s. Not. Working. … call him… no, don’t text him… who’s he on the phone with… support won’t help, tell him to log off…”


  10. - WeAreAVillage - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 11:29 am:

    Sweet they did this.


  11. - Oswego Willy - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 11:38 am:

    When you leave your camera on, and you’re playing old school solitaire with people watching…


  12. - 47th Ward - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 11:44 am:

    You’re on mute Mr. President…

  15. - Six Degrees of Separation - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 12:00 pm:

    Do you want to hear the next one acoustic or electric?


  16. - LawandOrder - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 12:02 pm:

    Don Harmon…the $40 some billion dollar man

    Remember this intro…”Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better, Stronger, Faster!”


  17. - Rabid - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 12:03 pm:

    Thirty days in the hole

    Sen. Harmon is no Lovie Smith.


  19. - twowaystreet - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 12:10 pm:

    Did anyone else catch that T. Cullerton went the opposite of everyone and shaved? He had been rocking a beard for quite a while.


  20. - Amalia - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 12:10 pm:

    glad to see these elected officials expressing appreciation for the work of others. thank you.


  21. - Steve Polite - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 12:29 pm:

    Tech Support: “Senator Harmon did you try turning your computer off and on again?”


  22. - low level - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 12:30 pm:

    Outstanding…

    might add that the diversity of the Senate Dem caucus really stands out in this video.


  23. - Rich Hill - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 12:46 pm:

    The Harmon Paradox: his beard is white, but somehow makes him look younger.


  24. - Rich Hill - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 12:47 pm:

    “This one’s called It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere.”


  25. - Leigh John-Ella - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 12:57 pm:

    The Speaker will join the conference in a moment, he just needs to download Zoom onto his landline.


  26. - Peters Piece - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 1:01 pm:

    Just picked up the old axe after forty year absence and I am salivating over those guitars


  27. - Cubs in '16 - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 1:05 pm:

    Pic from Senator Harmon’s audition for the role of Walter White in the stage production of Breaking Bad.


  28. - Helm - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 1:06 pm:

    Here is hoping Steve Brown lends Madigan his beard for his Zoom/Microsoft Teams round table.


  29. - Perrid - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 1:07 pm:

    I think the beard looks good.


  30. - Bored Chairman - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 1:18 pm:

    Funny stuff today. Thanks to the commenters for the laughs.


  31. - John Amdor - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 2:29 pm:

    “Anyways, here’s Wonderwall”


  32. - Keyrock - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 2:49 pm:

    Yes, I take requests. You want “Hard Times Come Again No More,” by Stephen Foster? O.K.


  33. - Anon - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 3:03 pm:

    Great video from the Senate Democratic Caucus. President Harmon pulls off the beard really well, very Oak Park professorial with near prefect coloring.


  34. - 37B - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 3:33 pm:

    As i’ve always said, Oak Park is a lot like Evanston.
    Kind of a college town.
    Without the University.
    Or the lake.


  35. - WH Mess - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 4:26 pm:

    Love the multilingual thanks. Even the shout out to the Andersonville (?) French community.


  36. - SAP - Friday, May 1, 20 @ 4:28 pm:

    I’d like to close with “Big Rock Candy Mountain”
