Come to Texas! The Texas Blogathon is here







The Texas Blogathon begins today.  If you haven't been paying attention, I am a Texan through and through, and I love my state.  Texas is the setting for many a movie, and Texas is also a producer of many icons of the cinema.  This blogathon was started to honor those movies and heroes.  Keep coming back all weekend to this post, as I will be updating this thread with all the entrants who have chosen movies to cover for this blogathon.  (Note to my fellow entrants: As always, be patient with me in getting your entries posted.  I am a working man, so the job must take precedence...)

I'm pretty liberal about freedom of speech, but if you try to use this blog to sell something it will be deleted.
