Texas Round Up

by: Matt Glazer

Mon Jul 09, 2007 at 07:15 AM CDT

Once a week BOR is part of a nationwide 50 State Blog round up.  That got us thinking, if we do it nationally, why not statewide?

Now we are working together with local, regional, and statewide sites to bring you the Texas Round Up, a weekly what's what in the Texas Blog-o-sphere.

Enjoy the best of the Texas left below the fold.
