Thanks. Some people are very intent on their city being the largest/best/first city of the Triad, but there are two equally important cities here without a clear favorite. GSO having a few thousand more residents certainly doesn't set it apart enough to be the clear #1.

I disagree.
If Greensboro didn't exist and I was looking to move from High Point under the same circumstances I could see myself living and being happy in Winston.

I don't see how this comment relates to the fact that there is no clear primary city in the Triad...there are two primary cities on very equal footing, somewhat like Minneapolis-Saint Paul.

I flew to Stuttgart, Germany (from ATL) last week and returned yesterday on Delta. Nice to see a subset of the hundreds of passengers thumbing through Sky and reading a little on the area at some point during the 9-hour journey. Returning yesterday, a great number of the passengers were German, and they were doing the same thing.

No matter where I've lived or traveled, it's been obvious that GSO suffers from a lack of exposure, especially when compared to other cities its size (population). This was a good move. Now, if the city's marketing engine could begin airing television spots like the ones I ALWAYS see for Chattanooga, Asheville, Nashville... they might be on to something.

Agreed. Go more than one state away in any direction possible, and tell someone you're spending the weekend in the Piedmont Triad. Unless you are talking to a C-D type, the side-eye is guaranteed.
