Who is following you for one? Just because somebody responds to you in a thread does not mean someone is following you. If you are that paranoid that people are responding to you on a message board than that's your issue. So nobody is hating on you either. If somebody disagrees with your logic, it's not hating whatsoever.

Dallas as a city IS in fact building just as much as Houston. When you look at Emporis, you'd see that Houston and Dallas has the same amount of construction. When I say Dallas, I mean the entire DFW area anyway. No disrespect to Fort Worth as it is a major city on it's own itself, but Dallas is the primary city and economic engine of that area and this is what most people refer to when trying to name the city of that area.

BTW, who said anything about green and orange lights? I said lines and I'm speaking of the transportation system that Dallas has which is far ahead of Houston's as of right now. DART will start construction in the next few weeks that will link Downtown Dallas to DFW airport. TOD's are being built in and around Dallas on these new DART lines. You're right on one end. Dallas doesn't have a Chinatown. It does however have a Koreatown. There are strips of different Asian communities throughout the city.

Your zoning reference is irrelevant so I won't respond to that. But as much as you want to not believe it, Dallas and Houston are on the same level. We asked you in the Texas forum and the general forum before. Give us reasons for you to think Houston is so much higher on a level than Dallas. And what level of cities is Houston on? What are Houston's peers?

So let's go by your logic here.

San Antonio 1,200,000 people
Washington 588,000 people
According to you, San Antonio is more important and at a much higher level than Washington DC.

Phoenix 1,500,000
San Francisco 800,000
According to you, Phoenix is more important and at a much higher level than San Francisco.

Jacksonville 760,000
Miami 405,000
According to you, Jacksonville is more important and at a much higher level than Miami.

Memphis 680,000
Atlanta 520,000
According to you, Memphis is more important and at a much higher level than Atlanta.

Do you understand how comparing arbitrary city population numbers are irrelevant?

the city population doesnt matter.... its the metro area population that makes the most impact

I like the feel and the proximity of Dallas better. Things seem more accessible. Traffic is better. The area just looks prettier to me. Oh...and the weather is way way way better.
