RIP Sputnik

With all the convention activity going on and the reported recent passing of Gov. Briscoe and Sen. Byrd, it may have escaped notice that we also lost Sputnik this past week.

Sputnik, for anyone not familiar, was a regular fixture at the Capitol during legislative sessions and one of the most colorful characters in the building (a mighty high bar to clear, to be sure). Sputnik was a tireless and tenacious advocate for motorcyclists in Texas.
