All of this witch talk makes me think of the show "Bewitched". That was a pretty cool show.

"Better" in your opinion. I'm sure those in Boston and Philly were saying the same thing before Chicago passed them. Same with people in Chicago before LA passed them (in population and the size of the economy).

People in Chicago still do say that, as do other people elsewhere. Los Angeles has improved a lot, but it hasn't completely taken the role of a number 2 city just yet. Chicago still pwns it in a lot of things, and vice versa- Los Angeles pwns Chicago in a lot of things. In which Los Angeles is starting to improve upon rather fast.

But I agree Scarface.

Pass me some gasoline, and a match, I want to burn this thread down already. It's ridiculous how it won't ever die. Lol.

Who cares if Houston passes Chicago by pop numbers. What mattters is the density, transit, walkability and characteristics that truly make a city.

In all of these Chicago trounces Houston now and always will.
