  6. - Asteroid of Caution - Wednesday, Oct 20, 21 @ 3:15 pm:

    And that’s how Speaker Welch learned that a “mock press conference” isn’t an event where you make fun of reporters.

    ==Over there is where all the Springfield Press corps used to sit==

    ==You see, I just gave a long winded answer to your question and never really answered it. That’s what politicians do during press conferences.==

  37. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Wednesday, Oct 20, 21 @ 6:33 pm:

    ==“I learned that from Pat Quinn. Did you know he liked to stay at Super 8?”==

    “And if it wasn’t for his Cutback Amendment, I probably wouldn’t be Speaker today.”


  38. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Wednesday, Oct 20, 21 @ 6:35 pm:

    ==Over there is where WCIA and WICS had full-time State House correspondents.==

    “Next to those seats are the seats where Bernie Schoenberg and Bruce Rushton used to sit at. And look over there, that’s Jim Leach’s seat.”
