How come NPR guys pronounce their "s" funny but only some of the time where is this affectation from?
Dick Gregory was on a panel discussion that aired this past Sunday on Tavis Smiley's radio show. I didn't hear all of it, but the YouTube video might even be from that event.
Anyone who thinks coming out against the iraq war in the time when Obama did is totally forgetting the atmosphere in the country at this time.
I work with Libs ... and they were pro war. The freeking NY Times was Pro war.
Hillary voted not with the crowds in the street but rather with her personal ambitions.
God I wish I could call in today, but I'm stuck at work. Having moved to New York, I have to say, I miss the municipal theatre of Chicago politics. From the Council Wars of my youth with Luke Skytalker (aka Harold Washington) and Darth Vyrdolyak (Fast Eddy), to Bilandic losing over snow, to Richie doing in Meigs Field out of a personal taste; there is no better city for political theatre than Chicago.
By the way, great accent, although I do think that Chicagoese was fairly limited to the working class south side. I cringe every time I hear Mayor Daley.
As a former Chicagoan, I have only one thing to say: Long live King Daley!
I also must admit that I'm very excited you're interviewing Scott Simon - one of my very favorite NPR people.
If he doesn't mind answering, what part of Chicago is Mr. Simon from?
Scott Simon....ok what does Scott think about Prostitution in Chicago?
So true about voting by name. I grew up in Chicago, and if you had an O' or a Mc in front of your surname, you were usually a sure thing for a win. Just look at the roster of elected Cook County judges.
