Eh, I think KC is right around where it should be recognition wise, and Austin, although great, is severely over hyped. KC is a great city, but it's in a poor location compared to other metros in the US.

3. It has sprawl.
4. It is car oriented.
5. It's in Kansas...
Neither Kansas nor Missouri doesn't get nearly the amount of hate that Texas gets...

Not to put too fine a point on it, but Texans made that bed, so they get to lie in it.

It's not the fault of all Texans or the majority.... but unfortunately, we're responsible for that HATE GROUP running our state government. They're straight up ideologues and savages, no nice way to put it. Not saying Kansas is much better, but they're not as vocal as the idiots in charge of our state. The ones that will put our economy on the line in order to have their "alt-right, Christo-fascist theocracy." When is enough going to be enough? I don't care about party, red or blue. We NEED pragmatic, educated, and sane people back in our state government.

Anything in Texas gets hated on. It dosent matter how much Texas progresses or how nice it is, people on c-d will always bash Texas cities as if it were a third world country.

In a lot of significant ways, Texas is actually fairly similar to a resource-rich third world country.

I wouldn't say third world country, Texas is maybe more like a combination of nations such as Dubai, Saudi Arabia, and Russia whose economies are primarily dependent on the energy sector.

Aside from the fact that it is one of the fastest growing states and that the same people crapping on TX are those that are flocking here in groves from all of the beloved big cities and states across the country, such as New York and California. Don't forget that Texas is one of the only states to prosper during the recession and has one of the strongest economies in the country.

Austin is hated as well. But you're right, I think Austin has beaten Memphis and Indy in polls here.
