For the life of me, I can't understand why Texans are so obsessed with the population of its cities?

I agree with you 100% why b/c people Texas are always making some wierd **** about Their city passing other cities/Countries in population like this one. Do you think Houston can pass the continent of Africa in population. That's some weird Ideas.

Well, San Diego's population (1,405,000) cannot pass Los Angeles (4,250,000) .

Good points...we've slowed down and we love it! Obsession with and bragging about population growth seems to be a Texas thing. Californians haven't thought that way for two decades and we still have 13-14 million more folks than Texas.
