I have to look that up for you. But I have seen it. It was just a couple years ago.
I just noticed this post, and you missed my point. I was trying to say, what would the Hispanic influence be in Houston without the illegals?

You'd have to drive on down towards Albany, GA if you wanna see some cotton fields.

And Dallas is as southern as Atlanta.

However Dallas is not as southeastern Atlanta.

Nice Article but Dallas/Fort Worth has like 23 fortune 500 companies. Not sure exactly how forbes came up with 14. I believe they just counted fortune 500 companies within Dallas city limits.
