Legislature vanishes in the night

Odd not to have the Legislature in town on Friday. They wrapped up the session late on Thursday and melted into the night -- the same way they had arrived way back in January. Tumbleweeds tumbling through the streets, no doubt rolling through the abandoned law-making chambers that used to resound with carefree laughter and the rustling of newly-minted bills. Parking was easy to find. No lobbyists hanging around on street corners, cadging quarters from passers-by. Eerie. But nice.
