When the legislative session ends Friday, it will be past time for many legislators to say goodbye.

If they don't leave voluntarily, voters should help them along.

To say some new blood is needed would be an understatement.

It isn't fair to criticize all since many earnestly approach their job.

But in total, job performance dictates that new faces are needed, and not just because, again, no ethics reform bill made it to the governor's desk or even a bill to cut the food tax or ban smoking in most public places.

Some bills wisely didn't pass - like the Sweet Home Alabama Bill.

And some wisely did - like one validating red light cameras and one offering incentives to make movies in Alabama.  

New, qualified faces with diverse backgrounds are needed to reflect the wishes of the majority of Alabamians, not those of a minority of lobbyists.
