Thanks for the comments, VictoriaParent and Spock. I didn't report on an illegal immigrant to glorify him and others -- just as we don't report on a local criminal trial to glorify the crime. Illegal immigration is an issue South Texas faces daily. Should we not report on that?

Great tips, Alton. Thanks! I may have to bring you with me :)Gabe
Noted, coolgranny. Thanks for the tips.
Thanks, mikespace. Know any South Texas survival experts?Gabe
pilot: Thanks for the question ("Exactly what can be the point of this contest?"). The point is to feature the region's most powerful people -- the movers and shakers who make things happen here, for better or worse. Powerful people often remain outside headlines and news stories. If you look at the list, you'll notice many names -- not all -- never appear in stories, yet they are arguably doing a lot to advance or change this region. At least according to Crossroads residents.We feel it's important to understand who the region's most powerful are, learn why they are powerful, and then to learn more about each person.I've heard from a few folks online who say the idea seems high-schoolish or similar to a popularity contest. That's not what this project is about, though.Thanks again -- Gabe
Wow, coolgranny. What a story. Thanks for sharing and congratulation!Gabe
Thanks, Robert. At this stage, we're asking folks to vote for the Top 5 candidates they consider to be the Crossroads' Most Powerful. Which four others would round out your list?Gabe
