Look lady, just because I don't constantly boost the Bay Area doesn't mean I hate it; I don't think I've actually ever said I hate it. Not sure why not being a homer means you hate a place.

Oh I guess I got the wrong idea from your posts, I always assumed someone or something was forcing or paying you to live there. I don't care if you like where you live or not though, I just interpret your posts as you being miserable there. A deficiency on my end I suppose.

Oh that's weird because this isn't the first time you've commented on how you assume I feel about and my posts about the Bay Area.

What's up with you passively aggressively calling people ladies, Radical Athiest. Do you think you're a big man? Because no one is buying you're mistaking everyone who criticizes the bay as a lady

duh.



and yet I still feel LA is struggling to keep pace...

2013 GDP
Los Angeles CSA $999 Billion
Bay Area CSA $667 Billion

The Bay Area is an economic beast that actually employs twice as many Californians from outside its borders than LA does.

That's an extremely telling commentary.
Sherlock? LOL...rudeness over such trivial foolishness...that's a shame

Anyway, I have already said in this very thread that The Bay would be second city in only 2 states in the country. The Bay certainly deserves its props. Whether you like it or not, its not the first city in California. Earlier in this thread I put Houston and Dallas-Ft Worth as equals. I cannot do the same for LA and SF. While the Bay has a per capita larger economy, more rich people etc; by your own figures LA still has a 50% larger GDP. Larger GDP, twice as many people, more famous...I mean, California is one of the easier states to pick first and second cities.

Actually, I created this thread, so I know exactly what it's about. Each state's "Second City" is not ALWAYS the second largest, the second most productive, or so on. I think in the case of Alabama, Mobile is a very deserving of the title for "2nd City" status, regardless of a slightly smaller metro area.

In the case of Mississippi how many people are calling for Gulfport to be 2nd city? In the case of Georgia, how many people are calling for Columbus to be 2nd city? In the case of Michigan, how many people are calling for Ann Arbor to be 2nd city over Grand Rapids? 2nd city is not always 2nd biggest.

Mobile's GDP is at 18 now and Huntsville is at 23.I can't find the article at the moment to back my claim .Huntsville never really passed Mobile metro in population. We lost Baldwin County a couple years back because it fell 1% behind the metro commuting paterns and Baldwin still pretty much feels like it is apart of the Mobile metro that is why this is strongly being pushed I-10 Mobile River Bridge's construction could generate $1.5 billion for Mobile area | AL.com . Mobile still feels more urban , vibrant and larger than Huntsville inspite of there progress.Baldwin County's commuting numbers have increased and if it still was in the Mobile metro then Mobile's metro growth would appear to be faster than Huntsville's because Baldwin County grew at a faster pace than Madison (Huntsville) County. Huntsville's GDP became larger when we lost Baldwin County. Baldwin is 27k shy of being larger than Montgomery County.

Huntsville has a lot going on for it but if you were to spend a day or weekend in both cities then you would know that the numbers don't truely represent how they truely feel.

Biloxi would be 2nd in Missisisipi even though Hattisburg and Meridian are larger.Savannah is second in Georgia even though Augusta has a much larger GDP and metro. Some would even argue that Columbus ,Oh is second.
