Also yes, I do believe Houston has passed Philly and will be made official in a few years.
Fixed it for you

good for Tokyo?

But what does that have to do with Philly taking a good look at out backside, cause that is all y'all gonna see.

NE posters are so sour they come up with every little thing to make themselves feel better.

You think I am crying that we don't have a subway? no. Would it be nice, probably.

Sorry Paul, a subway means more to you than it does to us. You flaunting a city in another country does nothing to us.
Let Tokyo do Tokyo and worry about Philly.

The ATL Poster who brought up Tokyo in the first place should do the same and worry about his own city.

Yeah, because transportation has something to do with the millions of people stacked on top of each other...
