Statehouse contrails


State Capitol Building, Springfield, Illinois.

From yesterday's SJ-R (Legislature sets record for longest overtime session since 1970):

[L]awmakers hit a significant milestone Tuesday, setting a record for futility by being in session longer than any year since the state adopted a new constitution in 1970.

Tedious and ridiculous. See also yesterday's Capitol Fax Blog: We're Number One!!!.

1970. Remember ConCon?

Dan, I do remember ConCon. They had a phone number you could call each evening to find out what happened that day. I called it every night.
