Please don't take this poll results seriously.

Word is it's been hijacked by Phoenix and Chicago forum people, in an effort to make Houston and New York look bad.

On top of that, the discussion thread has obviously turned into a Los Angeles vs. New York bash session.

How in the world did Houston go from very few votes, to winning this poll in such a small amount of time? I suppose it's true what others said about the poll being hijacked and flooded with revenge seekers because of one person's (who happened to be from Houston) comment? If true, that's sad and speaks volumes about the people voting here. I mean, why would you trash an entire city based on something one person said?

And I stand by what I said before -- How can you be disappointed in a city that never gets anything but bad press, yet has one of the better arts/culture scenes, great museums and restaurants?

I think it should be a requirement that if you vote, you post and explain your choice. Otherwise, I'm not believing it (and neither should anyone else).
