  1. Wow!
    Rep Andrade-you need some refresher courses , from any of the outstanding teachers in Illinois, to teach you how to write clear thoughts that others can understand!!!
    I am not sure why you need Fred to enlighten you on your JOB!

  2. Ha,ha…he sounds like 45 Tweeting!!
    Fred, please go have a beer or coffee with him to see if he speaks better than he writes.
    (In fact, just coffee–even one beer might slur his speech.)
    Curious minds want to know!

  3. Dear Rep W.T.F. Andrade,
    Beer good. Repeal 3% salary cap Good.
    What you really do everyday Bad.
    Sincere,
    Me Good Me

    1. Very funny, Ken–the post made me laugh (but sadly, because having an ILL-Annoy legislator who sounds/writes like IQ 45 is just sadly funny)–but your comment was really funny (I’m laughing, again!).
      Thanx! (spelled incorrectly, on purpose)

  4. I can only hope this isn’t a reflection of our legislators throughout the state! If so, then that may offer insight as to why IL is in the shape it’s in! Wonder how many other legislators read this blog in order to get the pulse of us mere mortals.

    1. I did have to call several self-described progressive local state legislators to sponsor the bill, unaware as they were that it existed.

    2. It likely is for many. Madigan just looks for loyal hacks (folks who do research on issues before they vote are really not welcome). R’s aren’t much better; they just follow the orders of the Illinois Policy Institute (a Koch-funded entity)
