Nah, Dallas has Grand Prairie and Fort Worth has Arlington. Arlington is much more "Fort Worth" than it is Dallas.

Berks is almost 100% as is Cumberland, Atlantic i think at 80%, and Mercer is 50/50

Plus the Northhampton PA addition to CSA 80% likely will add the Allentown/Bethlehem MSA of 1 million to the CSA

Philly will add many folks after the next census.

#4 on:
MSA
UA
Media Market

#5 on CSA unless it merges with NYC, that is whether Mercer come back on MSA

With Mercer and the other 3 counties the Philly MSA would be at 7.4 million, doubt all 4 will come back but also remeber these counties are very close, Mercer 11 miles, Atlantic 16 miles, Cumberland 14 miles, Berks is the furthest at 22 miles from the Philadelphia city limit, almost all would have a part inside the Houston city limit if you placed the center of Houston on Center City so these places are not exactely far - they just never added because of earlier commuter rates. Ah but sprawl has done that even here, pretty funny

He's just mad because Dallas is better than Fort Worth.

Arlington was built in large part by the massive white flight out of east Fort Worth and Forest Hill back in the day. GM had the biggest impact of any corporation in Arlington of making Arlington what it is today.

I like Arlington. Besides, your former football team plays there. If they "take ole dirty Arlington" then it is no longer yours
