Roll Call! Natarus? Natarus? Natarus????

Today is the first day of the new Chicago city council. Today is the day that we say goodbye to Alderman Burt Natarus and Alderman Dorothy Tillman. My friend Ben Calhoun wrote a great piece in the Trib about the tradition of the roll call. Let’s all go down to the council this morning dressed in body paint. Blue, white and red. And we get super drunk and heckle Joe Moore. Let’s tailgate and wear number “boob” in honor of our fallen Aldermen. Maybe they’ll give Natarus and Tillman a job up in the booth. Natarus does color, Tillman on the sideline. Except her hat blocks the background, so we just need to take her word for it. Shit, that would have been a great bit if we still had a radio show. Get Natarus and Tillman to do play-by-play of the new roll call.
