Ranging Reporter update: Will the Crossroads ever produce an American Idol?

Enoe Garcia was eliminated from American Idol competition Wednesday after he failed to impress producers in Austin. This led us to pose this question of the day:

Will the Crossroads ever produce an American Idol?

IHOP customers told Ranging Reporter JJ Velasquez their thoughts on Thursday.

A: "Yeah, to tell you the truth, there is all kinds of talent at Faith Family Church."

Victor Pilzner, computer operator, Victoria

A: "Well, why not? If Carrie Underwood was from a po-dunk town, this town sure can produce one."

Jim Pratt, maintenance manager, Pauls Valley, Okla.

A: "Yes. I think there's some talent here. Somebody will make it big."

Elaine Hauptman, housewife, Shiner

A: "I think yeah. From Flatonia where we live, there are two of them that tried out in Austin."

Briana Zimmerman, teacher, Flatonia
