    Idol Rich: And the Winner Is...

    All photos by Harry Wilonsky"Who's Ron Jackson?" asks the boy. "That's Jason Castro," I tell him. "Who?" "Exactly."​It's no longer the Cotton Bowl Parade that snakes through downtown Dallas on New Year's Day. Wouldn't make sense -- the Cotton Bowl's now in Arlington, in case you missed that break ...
