  1. I’m impressed by “that Talarico kid” and wish him well in his commitment to the citizens of Texas and to the entire U.S.A. , as well. It gives me much hope to see young lawmakers who have not yet been corrupted by the system. The most I would hope for is that he never enters that state of corruption! Hang in there, James. Work hard and stay true to your ideals. They are worth it!
