  10. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:04 pm:

    Signs don’t vote


  11. - thisjustinagain - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:04 pm:

    Schoolhouse Rock, Capitol Edition. “A noun is a person, place, or thing.” Next week, it will be “Unpack Your Adjectives”, describing the steps as “Tall”, “Blocky”, and “Wide”.


  12. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:05 pm:

    === Slip and Sue===

    They did. This was one of them, they cut off “watch” and “your” from this sign.

    Where is the supervisor who can count how many people read the sign?

    [Comment]


  22. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:11 pm:

  23. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:12 pm:

    After Trumpkins thought these were escalator stairs, the Secretary of State today…

  28. - Been There - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:25 pm:

    ====Thought they would have put that there when Slip and Sue was still around.=====
    I am pretty sure that sign has been there for a few years. Probably as long ago when she was there.


  29. - Kayak - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:26 pm:

    We admitted we were powerless in Illinois, that our lives had become unmanageable

    ‘… “Steps”… I still don’t believe it”


  33. - cover - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:33 pm:

    Another reminder that the movie “Idiocracy” was in fact a documentary

  38. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:46 pm:

    Ironically, there are 12


  39. - Dotnonymous - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:49 pm:

    Blog


  40. - Keyrock - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:51 pm:

    It’s a metaphor for how candidates have viewed the General Assembly - even before Obama went to the Senate and became President.


  41. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:52 pm:

    “No, man, see… it’s like the word ‘steps’ are like… a staircase… and it’s like… we *are* the steps, man… like a vertical… that’s so deep”


  42. - A Jack - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 2:53 pm:

    Probably expecting a split from Chicago delegation today.


  43. - aufjunk - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 3:02 pm:

    Years ago, when our state office building was planning an Open House, one of the stated goals was to provide “visual aids for the blind.”


  44. - From DaZoo - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 3:27 pm:

    Grassroots campaign to try to bring back Capitol Steps.


  45. - Give Us Barabbas - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 3:29 pm:

    The first one is to admit that you have a problem…


  46. - Kippax Blue - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 3:47 pm:

    At least the sign was honest— it could have read “Work Zone”.


  47. - Back to the Future - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 4:09 pm:

    OW is on a roll today.


  48. - Mama - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 4:15 pm:

    I think it is time to go back to basic teaching in the schools. We have failed the kids.


  49. - Mama - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 4:18 pm:

    Now it is time to do the steps exercise. One step, two steps, three steps more….


  50. - Citizen Kane - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 4:26 pm:

    I missed that exact step walking out of the Capitol a month ago and bottom out my right hip (I did not get hurt at all) it was embarrassing more than anything. I can see why that sign is there.


  51. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 4:27 pm:

    - Back to the Future -

    Thanks. I’m taking it one step at a time.

    “Caption?”

    “This new fitness trail on the Capitol grounds isn’t very inventive.”


  52. - IllinoisBoi - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 4:29 pm:

    Isn’t there a political comedy and satire troupe called The Capitol Steps? Was this their doing?


  53. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 4:35 pm:

    “Whoever this Steps character is, they got some primo parking during the renovation”


  54. - Bruce( no not him) - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 4:43 pm:

    The other side says “also steps”.


  55. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 5:25 pm:

    The other side says “mis-“


  56. - McLeanist - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 5:48 pm:

    I’m actually a little happy it doesn’t say STEP’S.


  57. - Sir Reel - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 6:39 pm:

    Cossacks enter here.


  58. - Out of Illinois - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 7:52 pm:

    Members of the House, Senate, and Governor’s staff enter here.


  59. - EssentialStateEmployeeFromChatham - Wednesday, Jul 21, 21 @ 8:05 pm:

    “That sign doesn’t refer to Steps, that’s actually an acronym Madigan used to use when reviewing Saputo’s. Saputo’s Tastes Exceptionally Primo Scrumptous.”
