That wasn't the question. You claim Houston and Texas are growing the "fastest" b/c they have the largest numerical increases. So by YOUR definition NYC is the "fastest" growing city in America, is it not? So please actually answer the question: From 2000-2007 would you consider NYC the fastest growing city in America? YES or NO?

Our red voting habits ensure we pay no taxes at all. We also have absolutely no problems that the other states have such as crime, lack of education, teen pregnancy and rates of preventable chronic disease. I have never visited or lived in other states, but trust me when I say they are not worth a second of your time!

So you disagree with me, huh? Looks like it's time to get another rope.

(**humps the Texas flag**)

I will agree with you about the housing being cheap thing. Whenever I watch a real estate show on television, it is amazing how cheap housing is in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Atlanta is considered to be affordable, but compared to Dallas, it is more expensive. For example, in Atlanta, the average three bedroom, two and half bathroom house is anywhere from $180,000-$220,000. In Dallas, at least on the shows I've seen, the prices range roughly from $140,000-$190,000.

I will agree that Texas is second best.

I flew into Dallas a few months back, and I figured out why they think it's so big: You can see all of it at the same time! It's flat!

DFW isn't that flat. Drive I-20 from I-45 to I-30 (Fort Worth basically), as well as I-30 from Downtown Dallas to I-20, and come back and tell me DFW is flat.
