I think he's referring to a handful of posters in particular who bash any city that is not Houston on a regular basis and defend the city too forcefully too often. It's created a backlash against Houston, I'm afraid. Best to lay low for a while... ssshhh

Haha...look at the poll. I wonder if every time someone from Houston logs in they vote for Chicago, and every time someone from Chicago logs in they vote for Houston....lol. That's classic!

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised of a majority of the votes for Houston are from Houstonians themselves.

I think it makes sense. Both cities seem to feel overlooked and overshadowed (Chicago by NYC and L.A., Houston by other Texas cities and to some extent maybe Atlanta) and seem to always be shouting out, "Hey! Over here! Look at me!"

I'm not surprised that Houston & Chicago have the most votes.

nah, I think Houston is more overshadowed by other Texas cities ,not ATL. It becomes a problem with people from ATL when they claim ATL is the capital and nyc of the south which is wrong. It takes more than publicity to make it to the big leagues, Houston has what it takes, just lacks the pubclity. They claim Busiest airport in the world and coke; we claim the 6th largest port in the world,TMC,nasa, and diversity.

I've just never considered ATL much competition compared to HOU.

Houston, by far. The poll seems to reflect it too.

If you define it that way, there is no way Houston should be winning this poll. Obviously the people voting for it are not familiar with Houston.

By his description, Chicago and Houston should be at 0 because these cities have the most laid-back people in this country, especially considering how big they are. Houston should've been replaced with Atlanta.
