SF is far superior in many many aspects other than weather, density, and scenery. Houston is a great place but lets be honest here SF>Houston.

Also SF's summers are not cool. They do not experience summer during the typical months the rest of the country does. SF's summers are between September and October (Indian summer). Yesterday it was 80 degrees in SF...not really what I would call cool. Many tourists come during the typical summer months and complain that SF has no summer but in reality they just come the wrong time of the year.

SF is nothing more than a city with an inferiority complex to LA and NY. San Jose is the real reason why SF is even relevent anymore
San Francisco is among the most enlightened places on Earth.

How does Houston compare to NY and LA by the way? Let me guess, loses in every category. Unlike SF, which quite frankly holds its own.

You get what you pay for <-the bottom line

sf has 2 hospitals ranked in top 20, ucsf is higher ranked than anything in houston, as is Stanford...7 and 15 in the u.s. respectively. sf has a bigger oil company than any in houston (chevron) so the 2 industries houston touts as their #1s get beat by sf? hummm.

come again? houston we have a problem...

better politics and people are subjective..

Oh, I am sorry....

SF is so superior to Houston and everywhere else not on the coasts. Houston is nothing more than a cow town where they rustle cattle in the streets still. SF is the world leader in every imaginable intellectual and cosmoploitan category known to man

Can I have my crediblity back from you?? Pretty please???

You do realize that San Jose is not Silicon Valley right? It is ONE of many cities that makes up Silicon Valley.

One of your fellow SF residents started the bashing which indicates the inferiority complex
Let me know how that great economy is going (high unemployment as we speak)
Actually porn is made in the San Fernando Valley not the Bay Area
