Below is the weekly Texas Progressive Alliance blog round-up. The Texas Progressive Alliance is a confederation of the best political bloggers in Texas.

Above is a picture of a tree thought to be  at least 1000 years old. It’s called the “Big Tree” and it is located at Goose Island State Park. The Big Tree is a Southern Live Oak. Or a Coastal Live Oak. I’m not sure as I’ve seen it described as both. Here is  information on this tree. Goose Island State Park is on the Gulf of Mexico. Here is information about the park.  I have never been to Goose Island State Park. It looks like a nice place to visit.  The park is in the Rockport-Fulton area.
