I think the point is that Minneapolis totally overshadows St. Paul...I think many people simply call the entire metro Minneapolis and leave out/forget about St. Paul, which makes it very much ignored in general.

Of course it is...and because of it's recognition, St. Paul often gets overlooked.

How often do you hear St. Paul brought up when talking about the Twin Cities area?

did you even read what I said. I said Houston is still far smaller than Chicago. Maybe you should get over yourself so that you can see well enough to read and understand

Minneapolis is also in the same metro as Landfall, a city composed of a few trailer parks with a population of a few hundred. I don't recall Landfall and Minneapolis getting equal national attention. Pardon my sass, but your point is invalid.

Same as saying Fort Worth is always mentioned Dallas (which is a lie), therefore, Fort Worth is NOT ignored....

By major, I'm going to take that as any city with a MSA or CSA of over (or nearly) 1 million people.

Birmingham, AL
Louisville, KY
Grand Rapids, MI
Rochester, NY
757 Virginia (Hampton Roads - VB, NOR, NPT NEWS, etc.)
Greenville, SC
Jacksonville, FL
Providence, RI
