Mathis is correct (or, at least, the answer I was looking for). It just barely made the >5,000 threshold, as did Cuero which is close behind, and there might be some smaller towns with higher percentages. Robstown is second, quite a bit larger. Ville Platte, Louisiana, leads the nation in home-born residents. Of the top ten, five are in Louisiana and the other five are on southwestern indian reservations.

Among cities >50,000, Victoria is tops in Texas and 10th in the US. The leader is the Buffalo suburb of Cheektowaga, NY. Among free-standing cities (not suburbs), Victoria is 5th in the nation, Scranton PA is first. Considering only "big" cities, Birmingham AL is tops.

Next Question: What nationally acclaimed artist once taught art in the Texas public schools, 1912-1914? Who & where was it, and provide a link to one of your favorite paintings by this artist.

There must be dozens. I know two of them personally, who sell their work in galleries, but it depends on what you mean by "nationally acclaimed".

A C Gentry would be one, from Tyler, where he taught school.

Oh, wait, I missed the specific dates. Georgia O'Keeffe, then, in Amarillo. I'm not overly fond of her work, so I won't offer a "favorite".

It is an incomplete answer without a favorite.

Since you did not provide a complete answer, but gave most of this one away. I'm replacing it with a new question.

New Question:

What Texas ranch husbands or harbors machines that have something in common with the Great Pyramid of Giza?

Hint: it is in the same part of the state as the preceding question.

You didn't specify that a person who had no favorite would be disqualified.

I don't think I should have had to specify that, it was clearly part of the question. That question is no longer in play. Here again is the current question:

What Texas ranch husbands or harbors machines that have something in common with the Great Pyramid of Giza?

Hint: it is in the same part of the state as the preceding question.

Hint: It is very colorful and it has been there for 34 years.

You mean if I ask a question, I can append an additional question calling for an opinion which might not applicable in the case of some respondents, and if that answer is unsatisfactory, I can nullify the whole question and ask another one? If I had lied and affixed a link to a painting that I did not like, my answer would have been ruled correct? By what criteria would the judges have ascertained whether or not I was being honest in proffering a picture that I represented as being my favorite?

For example, if I pose a question and require, in addition to the correct answer, that the respondent state his sister's middle name, would that disqualify all participants who do not have a sister? Just as you disqualified all respondents who do not regard any O'Keeffe painting worthy of being classified as a favorite. Even if an explanatory note is attached to that effect.
