    Famous Isaan people

    OK, what with all this renewed talk about the rural poor northeasterners, etc .. how about rich and successful Isaan people? They don't have to be internationally famous. I wonder how long this list will get. I'll nominate one person, please add any others that you know of.

    # 1. Tony Jaa, actor, star of Ong Bak (1 and 2) and Tom Yum Goong -- from Surin.
