"Honestly, you guys and it's they always blame the man. You're the man. They blame Mr Charlie. You're Mr Charlie. They blame the system. You're the system. They blame the government. You're the government they blame Whitey. Most of them are Whitey. It's It's really an amazing thing, And they just passed the buck after running the show. For decades and decades for generations and generations, and then turn around and say Look how awful everything is. Who did this? The answer is you did You and your forebearers did all right. That's that you did. And you know that again out of wedlock births and the abortion rate and the total disregard that we teach from birth for human life. It's extraordinary. All right, let's go to Michael. Let's go to the telephones and a lot of other stories schedule right now. Let's go to a rich calling from Niles, Illinois, listening on the great WLS. Hey, rich. Good morning. I want to point out that we did have honest cover and cook County, her in Chicago for four years. His name was Martin Martin Can Ellie and the reason they put Martin Keneley in there? Was because the previous mayor was a Democrat. He was so crooked they were afraid they were going to lose the election. So they put Martin Canali in there, and he was honest. And then, after four years, the Democrat Party says, not only sounds crap. We've got to make some money, And then they put in Richard J. Daley and as far as the Preckwinkle and Lightfoot they were both running for mayor of Chicago and Lightfoot, one out and I went to vote to get rid of Preckwinkle because she was running for President of Cook County, and when I looked at the ballot there, there was only my name down there. It was probably good. There was nobody else listed that you could vote for no opposition so she could have voted for herself and been elected president of Cook County. Uh, the Democrats have run Chicago for over at least 100 years, and they run Cook County pretty much for 100 years. And Illinois's broker, Kony is broke Chicago's broke and Chicago is starting to turn into a communist hellhole with the kind of people that are running our government. Yeah. You're not suggesting that there were voting irregularities in Chicago Democrat party elections? Of course. Let me I want to say one more thing I as a foolish young man registered as a Republican. And the effect on that. The reason I wanted to do this because I wanted to vote for for Ronald Reagan and I was so new enamored with Ronald Reagan. I did that. And the effect was they moved by polling place from from two blocks away from my house to six blocks away, and they didn't bother to tell me about it. Until I had to vote again. And the guy that did that eventually was resigned his office because he was connected with, uh, crooked politics, and they were the government was going after him, so he resigned. And he left his office. That's the kind of government we have in Chicago. And that's kinda go that we've had for 100 years. Yeah, Yeah, And I just keep doing it over and over and over again and keep finding new ways to weasel their way out of it. You know, between a corrupt media and a corrupt Democrat party. There's a lot of corruption going on there. It's the great corrupt circle fest of of the ages. Amazing stuff. Rich. Thank you very much time we had a Republican running for mayor was have been in a mosque here and the Republic Democrats stole the election from him. And then there was another. Guy. I can't remember his name. He was a businessman. He ran against Harold Washington. He lost. I think that was the very last Republican that I can remember that was running and in Chicago for for for the Bears office. Was Mayor Harold Washington Really a cross dresser? Or was that just mean? Mere and spirited? Fun? I know. So I hope so. Rich. Thank you. Thank you for the call. And rich just mentioned Ronald Reagan. Which brings me to a Ronald Reagan story. Ronald Wilson. Reagan. Um, just you know that greatest one of the great figures of the 20th century. A. The story has emerged that Ronald Reagan when he was visiting the Soviet Union summit with Mikhail Gorbachev, a real summit. Not like this Biden thing with Putin. What a joke that was. The headline in The New York Post is and the photograph is right here and and you may even remember the photograph. It's from Red Square. Mikhail Gorbachev is standing behind Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan's looking great and as blue suit. White shirt, red tie standing in Red Square and been there seen that. And Ronald Reagan is about to shake hands with a little kid. Maybe 10 12 year old kid looks like a communist. The kid does, and and a bunch of Communist standing around Ronald Reagan and garbage shout, standing behind Ronald Reagan. And the headline is and then Eric Post today, Samuel Chamberlain does this 1988 pictures show Putin Spying on Reagan Question, Mark and there on the left side of the picture. There is a young, possibly Vladimir Putin, KGB agent posing as a kind of a strong Russian blonde haired guy. Looks like a spy. Looks like an agent. Probably put polonium 2 10 in your soup. This guy he's got blond hair. Kind of longish, and when you see it, you say, if you look past the hair say that face looks just like Putin and the guy's got a camera, Maybe even two cameras hanging around his neck like he's a real tourists in them. But it could be any clinching his thumb in his fist, which is a little weird. You know if you're about to punch somebody lasted so last way you want to keep your thumb under any and he's wearing sensible slacks. He's got the stands belts French for a no belt. Sensible slacks, and they look like Soviet sensible slacks kind of cheesy and don't fit very well. But it looks like because that's what Khamis do with clothes. They ruin those. But it looks like with Ronald Reagan standing there about shake hands with a kid Did Ronald Reagan bump into future Russian President Vladimir the Impaler poutine? By chance more than 30 years ago. The story reads former White House photographer Pete Souza. He was the Obama White House official photographer for many years is letting Instagram users judge for themselves. Pete Souza, best known the man behind the camera during Barack Obama's two terms at 1600, Pennsylvania Avenue. Posted the snap earlier this week ahead of President Biden Summit meeting with Putin in Geneva. The photo shows the Gipper extending his hand extending his hand to a young boy while accompanying Soviet.

Your parents met in a way that kind of foreshadowed your future in a little bit like they didn't mean a bar that didn't mean party is actually true that they met at a library. Of course it's a. I've had my own moments with that story. But it's the absolute truth. My mother was going to interview at. What was the large libraries in sta cultural center and my father was working at a desk. Saugus he Slip some gaming but yet that's that's where they met and then my mother was working actually on the the floor where the music was where all the film were. The vinyls that was this is not harold washington library This is before perr washes number and They met their first date was purple. Rain of the movie yet differs date was to go see preparation. The movie that is not suspicious. I eight yeah yeah. My dad loved france and it was really interesting. Because when i was putting out kinsey a memoir that is very reminiscent to me in a lot of ways of the story of purple rain Imprint the first place that i was asked to come pretty much to drop. The album actually was to first avenue for sold out show. And that's where my father lives now. My father has lived in minnesota for longer than twenty years. Twenty five thirty years probably which is why. This album is a purple winds wire at the vinyl herbal. But it was the first show that i was asked to come in do at prince's club where my father would walk at c be reforming in his hometown. Right before the shutdown so was the first and last show that i got to perform before we before the pandemic times matt. What what was it like for you. It was magical. It was so so amazing. I felt like it's called me. They're a felt like prince called me. You know called me to be there not knowing that things would shut down in a couple of weeks after that.

Right of course asked me to come an open for her. So i do the sold out show and it was just one of the most magical experiences that i've had as far The reception was so so incredible and You know the people of minnesota really made me feel like a star that day in so it was just a lot of moments that were more magical more synchronised than even you know just the forty minutes i was on stage. It was just a whole magical experience that it's sort of like everything was leading up to that moment. Have you talked to your dad about that. His show yeah. It was so funny. My dad is very mysterious guy so when he came i didn't see him. He called me till we. It was a great show. And all that but i think just the way my mind works in the art. That was moving through in the art. That i was making and where i was in that space. I can't lie that i was like. I don't even know if he came. I don't even know if he was even actually here and van but me and my dad had this really interesting connection. I mean you have that connection with your parents. You have the connection with people that brought you into the world doesn't have to be so literal or on the phone or shortly proof or whatever life. I have that tie with my parents. My parents no when. I'm going through something whether i talked to them or not. Like they'll feel it from across town or prostate or cross country in so Randomly two or three weeks later. He sends me a video of me like on my last song. You know rocking the stage of okay. Right he was legit there. that's awesome. yeah. I mean as bad i think You know amazon. There's that connection. There's that sort of thing which. I'm fairly practical person. But there's also certain things like that that i just believe in you just feel something doesn't matter where you are I know you're also really close with grandma coming up as well right. Oh yeah my best details. Tell me more better ellen thompson. She was born in nineteen forty three in mississippi. And i love to speak her name. She was one of the first people that clap from me in made a really big deal out of me knowing how to read on my seventh birthday. She made me de.

And i'm writing a paper on martin luther king junior at tell the story of his life. But i'm you know in the beginning saying oh telling my cousins rookie creek turtle i have to write this paper on martin luther king junior Go into the story by the end of the story.

The city is calling it a fresh start a four year debt forgiveness program to help former city colleges. Students return to school. The second city is giving Chicago and a second chance under the program. Some 21,000 students in good standing dropped out over the last decade because they couldn't pay their tuition and fees. Will be eligible to clear their debt and return to finish school. Too often, college debt stands in the way of a person's dreams for their futures, The Bears office says of the students who qualify for the program, 51% of black 34% Latino. These air students have already accumulated some college credit and left in good standing. The vast majority, as chancellor indicated, are black and brown and come from the communities most impacted by the economic crisis and covert 19 Returning students will have half their outstanding debt forgiven if they remain enrolled with good grades. The rest of the debt is forgiven. Once a student completes his or her degree till Willis was enrolled at Harold Washington two years ago before tuition Bill arrived, she could not handle. I was working two full time jobs and I was so motivated But I was unable to pay off the rest of that solution. Willis plans to return to school through the program, The mayor says this new effort is the next step in Chicago's fight against poverty. Upper mobility doesn't have to be a pipe dream anymore.

Having been in the, the federal government. And in the prosecutor's office understand the sources of the kind of corruption that can ruin the city has really ruined the city for years and years. So I think she's determined to, to look at that, and do whatever she cans rooted out that she was a little bit, you know, taken aback by her aggressive at first to try to stem violence during the Memorial Day weekend, which showed an uptick of shootings, but a slightly reduced number when it came to homicides that happened in the city last weekend. Determine you have to give credit for that. She's determine and has been as you said, a, the fact that has been some shooting, but. Hopefully over the vegetables will in fact and there's some food. The chief of police is working very hard with her. And she is getting around to many of the neighborhoods on the south west side of the city and hopefully, some changes will be will be, you know, I'm reminded Bob in and you personally witness this, and may have even been a part of it.

Absolutely. Well, as I said, having been a federal prosecutor, she understands the terrace of the tag is, and she understands and it's quite possible that he will be indicted and a half to resign. And what she's saying is don't both do all of that event of fun. Because to probably.

If you were stuck in one place, every day was exactly the same and nothing that he didn't Attard. Bill Murray, groundhog day. Okay. So you drawn that to say, what after this, and our studio Austin clan Cape going, ten ways to stay creative in good times, and bad is his latest book. He's talking about it tonight at the Harold Washington library can folks still see you at six o'clock tonight is still possible to get tickets. Yeah. Come on down. So we played the Bill Murray clip from Brown hug day where he and in fact, the chapter in your book is the first or second chance, the first chapter titled every day is groundhog day. So what are you talking about here? I think we all feel like sometimes our life is out of our control and life becomes very repetitive. You know, like we're just sort of like whenever I go out to my studio. I, I walk out the garage behind my house where I work, and I go in and close the door and I sit down and look at a blank page, I think to myself, didn't I just do this yesterday? You know, the created all lives. Have a certain amount of repetition to them. But I think what Phil discovers, which is so wonderful that even though his life is ultimately out of his control. He's repeating the same day or over, he discovers that each day gift is a gift and it's the meaning of his life is how he fills those days that he gets. And I think that's the point that we all sort of have to come to the even though we might feel stuck in these loops. You know, stuck in these sort of creative routes every once in a while it's really how we fill our days, the provides the meaning for our life. And I think all great creative artists sort of have this sort of daily practice in which they do sort of go back to a blank page every day, and they do sort of do the same thing every day. But that's an opportunity for them to get the good stuff. But I'm also still again, thinking about people whose jobs, lives aren't inherently creative. They work on an assembly line at a factory or something like that. And I'm glad to hear you saying what I think, is even if that's the case. What's more important is how do you feel your life with things that make you happy? That's a creative process. How do you find or maintain that exactly? How do you find it? Maintain some sort of creativity in your everyday life. When you're when you're when you are away from the line. You know, when you're when you're. In your personal life. When you're at home, or, or even when you're on your lunch break, you know, because I think lunch break, so this wonderful opportunity to sort of disengage, and do something creative. Whether it's just take a walk or spend a little time with a notebook or even listening to music, which piece of advice, you have the people come back to time and again for and say, wow, what a game changer. Thank you for that. Oh, I think the for this book one that people keep bringing up over and over is forget the noun do the verb. Now. What does that mean? Well, we all know people who wanna be writers that writing thing, it's a little tricky. Right. And I think that, you know, if you forget about the job title you want. And you think about the work to be done so forget about being a novelist just worry about writing. I think that will take you someplace, further and far more interesting than obsessing about this now that you wanna be. Because if you focus on the verb, you know, if you just right. Maybe discover that you're poet, non novelist. Maybe discover a talent for screenwriting or maybe discovered that you're never going to make any money doing either. But don't you enjoy writing imagining a screenplay and putting it to paper you sure, yeah. Like, maybe discover that. Wow. I really do love filling that journal in the morning before I go off to work really juices me up. It was just on vacation. And I was trying to every day journal what I did that day cool, including what I wore. And my wife said, why are you putting that down, or somebody else that, and I said, well, because when I think back on trips I've taken I packed of clothes I ate food. I did. These things, and I want to try and remember as much of the experiences. I can't you're closer, very personal part of your day. So I put down I had on my coral pants with gray shoes and a print shirt. And every time I try to do something like that I discovered that it's difficult for me to finish even a week's worth of it that it is. It's, it's task. Yeah. It's easier to not do the task, I so enjoy having done it. But I close with this just give me a thought on the discipline it requires to do these things that will make your life, more fulfilled. I just think of it like doing pushups, you know, like, we all kind of know that, like, well, if you wanna get ripped like you gotta do your pushups every day, you know, and it's the same for creative work. Like if you don't show up every day, you're not going to have the muscles to do it, and you're not gonna find your great works. You should do your show tonight without your shirt on. Are you ripped? No. But you are here. There's a reason why I write the book is ripped it's called keep going. It's a little five inch by six inch blue paperback. If you will pretty laminated pages in his art of sorts in there it's by Austin plea on its subtitle, ten ways to stay creative in good times and bad. So right book at the right time Austin, thanks for coming into our studio. Thanks for having me. We'll come back to Chicago. Extension seven twenty here on WGN Jon Hansen.

Well, he just thought he was a better legislative than he was administrator. And that's where he wanted to stay. Effective that way, and it turned out. I guess the opposite. You know? Incredible. And you keep his legacy alive with the Harold Washington legacy committee. What is that all about? I'm glad you asked that there because everybody thinks of heroin, and they think of me at Washington, but he's legacy so much broader than that because herald with a state rep state Senator. Yes, congressman, and then mayor, and he left an indelible impression each athlete star high school athlete. Absolutely. People don't pass the first commemorative holidays for Dr king in the country. Then he went on to congress and because of his. Unique deals, I guess in negotiating and what have you?

To the phone lines right now, we're going to begin with a good friend of the program talking about J P calling from Chatham. You're on Chicago's speaks. You commonly question this morning. Yeah. Actually, it's a little bit off topic. But. Because I asked him to to let you know about that. But I'm reading arid zone. She's a Facebook posting on February seven talking about the debate or the forum that you hosted last week and over a trinity. Yeah. And so he commented. Oh that he quoted you saying that where 'cause interrupted and you said, wait, wait, wait, Mr. Khazar, excuse me. This is not a debate. This is a forum. We're taking space right now. So then he is comment. Then was I will host yet another quote forum tonight, but I believe such joint appearances should be classified as quote debates as a feature clash of ideas, though, not necessarily tit for tat. But then he ends it saying, and if a quote sacred space can't handle a little political friction it shouldn't Jose blank and that out forum. And when I read that he just really missed me because first of all you're trying to campaign that his debate or you know, his. Mirrow thing is better than yours. And he just really gets me net down. I feel like it's kind of where white progressives are so era Ghent that they're just diverse enough to look down on why conservatives, but then the aren't, but they show that they really aren't as diverse as they think they are. Yeah. And I just wanted to throw that out to the entire Chicago speaks community to go out there. And just let them know, you know, just how era gonna use that. And you. About how the way you do. I wasn't a at the forum. Yeah. I imagine. It's just like how is that? Chicago speaks which you do every week and done it for years. That that's a that's a definitely a great way to to listen to the different ideas. And yeah, just say I'd really like to get this Eric and other people like him just to be little more educated. Well, listen, J P. I appreciate that. And it's all about decorum. That's that's my main thing, you know, if it's called the debate. Then you're able to attack the person sitting next to you. But if it's not a debate. Then, you know, it's about your ideas that you present to the public and people want to see that forum that I hosted with eleven of the candidates for mayor over at trinity United church of Christ.

Tell the listeners when I took over this show three and a half years ago now almost in terms of following the death of my good friend Taiwan's Li I took it over. But I wanted people to have a sense of decorum and equanimity when they speak on this show.

And let me tell you something best thing that could ever happen to me because in terms of giving back it was Dorsey tiles. Who came up with the sharing program and the mayor's office to make sure to to the mayor Washington that there were people out here hungry on the street without things man and don't see that helped shape that program along. And I'm so glad I was able to make a contribution her with that nine on your.

Thank you for all that you've done book black community and keep going and Bob, we need your brother. We need your brother. I don't care this once a week. Go back to what we did back in the day without political education, and you have to get that credit kebab deal because he was Bob stocks. That was able to bring all of those different personality basement of Northeastern University brother, nothing that wasn't easy. But we pulled it off. And thank you for that. Not just like the the book of. Yeah. Go ahead on that note. Go ahead because I don't think the community has been given enough credit for their role in electing peril. Bob, all the time. He played a major role. We were just as divided then as we are now, but somewhere there was enough maturity to work separately. But together all going for the same goal. You know, you had the Bob start the mount miles or whatever you want to call. The other side Allen John Johnson and so forth and so on and like I tell Bob. He was major because those two groups never met together. If they had Bill, Barry, and Bob and Conrad was still because we still wouldn't have. Bob and Conrad and all that group. I said they couldn't raise the corner put out a side, but they were both needed. You know, when when you use that kind of the -nology there in terms of the mile miles and Bill is that is that I'm reminded in terms of the turn of the last century because there was a great divide and a great debate that existed, you know, when we look at the debate between F E W E B D boy as well as Booker T, Washington both of them really wanted to uplift black people. But they went about it in terms of different ways, absolutely history. But in a good way and Bob was key. Because he was on. I guess he was the one could work with both groups, and he was a liaison between the two groups. That was major in the hall. I know that you would express this sentiment with the Senate sentiment with the this morning is that it is so vitally important that we teach our children and children's children and their children the importance of honoring our elders, and they had chance to do it over at the do Sabam museum. They it looks great over there. Exhibit this new exhibit with regard to voices of the civil rights movement from Comcast is a permanent exhibit. And you know, doesn't cost hardly anything to be a member. But to take your kids there and teach them a sense of history by books. I just went by Powell's bookstore, and this is an unsolicited plug here, but they have discounted books there, and they had this wonderful children's book on a biography of Barack Obama. Yes. And you know, I had to like say ok, you know, let me get that book. For my grandchildren. Yeah. My heart is with the Milan. I'm proud of the millennium. I really am. Glad to see them becoming active and they're voting according to the sometimes the starting to. And that's a good thing because they're are future. Yeah. You know, we definitely thank you for calling this morning, brother hall. Thank you. Good. Okay. All right. And as I mentioned that exhibit is over at the do SABA museum. What did it mean for you? When you guys walked down the little catwalk there onstage, and then saw these these posters that featured your likeness on them. Well, you know, his character for me. I don't belie-, and I want you to know the year of the woman, I said well, thank God. I'm here. Because you're the only woman that was represented. Airlines.

But if if you don't want to call somebody a guy and address a guy, then you're in trouble. I'm just get confused a lot. All right. But but but bumper. You're asking difficult questions about why Chicago libraries try to determine why so many dolts were looking at pornography. At the herald, Washington library. They looked at it back in twenty eight that's eleven years ago. No, libraries in favor of this. But we have no control a decade later. The problem continues to exist for patrons who find pornography, a nuisance. And the Harold Washington library continues to be a Goto spot. Well, that's good. To know. What has changed is the tone of the people in the industry F places like the all American Library association in Chicago. Someone with the office of for an intellectual freedom said technology, and the law has not changed but behavior policies have while policies prohibit disturbances in the interest of keeping the peace. We've reached a point where technology hasn't changed very much in the last decade law hasn't changed the nature of the library of a public space hasn't changed. She said libraries have come to the point where behavior policies and internet. Use are the best way to address these issues. What does that mean? You can. You can watch pornos in the library. You just can't hoot holler whistle or take your pants off. That's what that means. The problem with internet filters is they are not a silver bullet. They don't work as advertised. She said they over block constitutionally protected materials, they under block materials we are targeting, which might be obscene materials or child pornography. Since special domains designed for x rated sites. Never really took off many libraries are left tolerating the behavior just like they did a decade ago. I love this the library is not the villain here. We're not promoting pornography endorsing it. We're making a medium available to people and that is the internet. Then why are we putting out the internet? I thought books were the thing at libraries makes you wonder. What the future of libraries are given that so much of everything ever created is available for you at home. That is why do we need a library? When you have Google. And a lot of libraries were maybe there still are. It's been awhile since I've been to my local library. They had lots of movies watch of movies. Wait.
