I'm kinda appalled that people are trying to make a case for Richmond being more relevant or on the same level as Sacramento...Really y'all?

Someone in the Sac forum once said Sacramento is the Rodney Dangerfield of cities. It doesn't get any respect, even where it's due. But most people judge cities off tourist areas and google maps on this forum.

They think Vegas life is the strip, NOLA is a giant french quarter, Honolulu life is Waikiki.

Yeah I don't think these Sacramento guys are egocentric, rather they are quite humble.

The 3 heros all Sacramentans, who saved the lives of 500+ people on a French train a few weeks ago.

Sacramento and it's Mayor are giving those American heros a parade on September 11 in Sacramento.

Pretty much. I'm not sure what else to suggest seeing as I asked for more in the way of cool stuff Sac has and just got more bickering.

I love it. I knew exactly that is the response I would get. Actually that convention brings in millions from outside the local area.

Notice how you ignore the small example of the great and COOL folks who either lived in Sacramento or still live in Sacramento like the

Justice of the Supreme Court Anthony Kennedy, who ran Sacramento's top law college, McGeorge School of Law, before becoming the Justice of the Supreme Court.

Again, people have told you. But you people really do not seem to listen, which is the popular stereotype for "y'all". Let's start with an NBA team. Does Richmond have one of those? How about a large Asian population? Got weed shops? Any light or heavy rail commuter transit? How about the murder rate? How cold is it in January? How humid in August?

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Sac does not have to be Paris to be a bigger fish than Richmond. Every region in the US with 2 million people has more going on than the Richmind area.
