I don't know why you say 'goodbye,' I say 'hello'

The Capitol Crowd has compiled the complete list of who's new and who's out at the Texas Legislature. There are 21 new faces in the Texas House for the 80th session, and five new senators.

I'm especially going to miss Suzanna Hupp, Pete Laney, and even Terry Keel. Some of the others, not so much. (Yes, Al Edwards, we're talking about YOU.)

Capitol Crowd also reports that retirng Austin state senator Gonzalo Barrientos will celebrate his pending departure with friends and supporters at a big retirement party and dance Dec. 15 at Palmer Auditorium. Gonzalo been my state senator for more than 20 years, so Hasta la vista, Senador, y buena suerte!
