The Sleeping Alderman

Berny Stone has represented Chicago’s 50th ward since Ron Santo was still playing for the Cubs. Last year, Stone held off a challenge from Naisy Dolar. This photo, via WBEZ,  of Stone sleeping during today’s City Council hearing, is liable to be plastered all over Dolar’s 2011 campaign material, in the unlikely event that the 81 year old choose to run. (Apparently Stone’s naps aren’t new; Jay’s Dog Fight in the 50th blog is “dedicated to keeping an eye on the Sleeping Man and the community of West Rogers Park. He pretends to stay awake and we pretend to pay attention.”)
