On a side note, someone left this in my box as they were giving me a rep:

Quote:
Wow, no wonder Texans have the stereotype of being idiots :s A metro of 1 million is considered major. For someone on a site known for its geography discussions, you sure aren't very bright, kiddo.
First off, we're talking about Albuquerque, New Mexico, which doesn't even have 1 million people in their metro area.

Second, with the city itself, ABQ is 32nd largest. By that, yeah, you could maybe call it a major city. But if YOU are going by metro (57th largest), it's not even close.

And lastly, you're dissin' me while giving me a rep up? Must be a troll. I would have just inboxed you all this back, but since you were too cowardly to name yourself, I thought I'd just put this up so EVERYONE could see.....

Stay classy, Annoymous.

Because being anonymous behind a screen name isn't anonymous enough for some people. It's just City Data, though.

I would consider Albuquerque a major city.

I especially agree with Louisville. I never, ever hear about it, even though I know it is a major city and metro, larger than New Orleans, Omaha, Salt Lake City, OKC and Buffalo. It never comes up in discussions.

I still don't think that constitues "most people". Maybe the people you told just aren't very geographically inclined.

(Does it even qualify as a major city, btw?)
That video is really outdated, Bugs Bunny mentioned that he thought he hit Pismo Beach to eat a bunch of clams but overharvesting killed the clam population in Pismo and there are hardly any left.

Point is, ABQ had more of a major position in pop culture than several other cities.

That's why I barely consider it to be "ignored".

I disagree. Albuquerque is pretty well known if only for being the only decently sized city in its region. If you are travelling I-40 out to California, once you pass Oklahoma City and go west, Albuquerque is the only real metro area you'll pass through before you hit Barstow and take I-15 into LA.
