That's like saying we in American should be envious of Ethiopia for having 8% economic growth in 2008.

because people have said it? I guess you missed the post where people have stated "I always see Houstonians defending their city".

Yes, I did manage to miss that.

I voted for Houston. I did so due to the daily barrage of unbridled boosterism that borders on delusional thinking by many (not ALL) Houston forumers. It isn't pretty.

I voted Phiily. Due to being so close to NYC it is always overshadowed by its larger neighbor despite being a great city. That may be why their sports fans are so angry!

I could say the same for people in ATL, especially the ones stating how it is the "Capital of the South". I've seen a few Houstonians boostering (people say I do too, but w/e), however many don't.

You certainly could - that is your right.

However, the forum and this poll in particular sure wouldn't back up your line of thinking, would they?

The results of the Capital of the South poll was even more lopsided than this one.

Personally I don't care how the poll turns-out. The top two most voted cities shouldn't even be on here, because of how underrated and laid-back they are. Houston is in no way inferior to any city, if we were we'd be like Atlanta building tons of skyscrapers and wannabe Rodeo drives trying to keep up with the big boys. Houston has been known to just go with the flow and not rush things, that is exactly why we are doing so good in this type of crisis.

I'm not trying to be hard on ATL, but lets keep it real. ATL and DAL are inferior to cities like CHI ,LA, and NYC. You guys go around claiming to be "capitals of the south" or "LA/NYC of the south". Building up too many condos, but yet hardly anyone is buying them, and trying to make your cores urban, but yet only a small amount of people are living within the city. This is what I call inferior and look where you got yourselves trying to "keep up with the joneses".

Yes, I wish I could live in a city where they just lost over 66 thousand, running out of water, high crime rates, and with such crappy rappers.

ATL is the place to be....if you have no plans for the future and want to be a bum
