I guess it makes sense that SF would want to include SJ becasue that is where most of the educated people are in that area
And then look at his ENTIRE political career.

Economy is a little worse than before but nowhere near as bad as anywhere in California
If it's in Houston, knowing the humidity there, it sounds pretty disgusting.

Actually you are very inncorrect. SF is one of the most educated cities in the country, more people in SF have degrees than in San Jose. By the way most of the workers in Silicon Valley do no even live in SJ! They live along the Pennisula right below SF...Atherton, Los Gatos, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Woodside, Menlo Park...

Why do threads on Houston always attract all the snide comments and flames?

If Houston were so inferior, that should speak for itself instead of people having to make things up and talk out of their butts, don't you think?

Houston has a lot more hospitals than that ranked in the top 20. M. D. Anderson is #1 in the cancer hospital category.

Look up the Texas Medical Center. It's soon to become larger than downtown Dallas by some accounts, and it's the largest medical district in the world.

The larger oil company in SF is really is no matter. I don't think anyone is going to argue where the country's energy capital is.

Not true. It's 2009. Not 1979.

See above post on Texas Medical Center. Many, many medical innovations have come out of Houston. Please do some research on this subject.

Good question. You know what they say about people who have to be rude...
SF should speak for itself. Why the need to put down Houston (most of what you're saying is not true anyway, as I've demonstrated.)

Yea but I bet in Western NY you did have some of your own stations. San Jose does not have it's own radio stations or television stations. It has nothing. All the radio stations in the Bay Area are located in SF. I'm just saying if San Jose is suppose to be this big metro apart from SF why wouldn't it have it's own radio stations or news channels and why would it rely on SF so much for this?

Los Gatos, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton, Los Gatos are all right next to San Jose. Much closer to SJ than SF

Median income is higher in SJ as well. Why is that?
