Also what is this spin you speak of ? Show us what your talking about , Harvey spin ? What ?

What percentage of homes do you think flooded either during or after Harvey ?

The point is they do not look the same (places along the Grand Parkway in West Houston) in fact I really don't ever hear people saying this.

When it comes to culture and diversity Houston is head and shoulders above DFW. Houston is like an inquired taste, you'll appreciate it once you get used to it.

I see you don't actually describe how this is spin. I posted a poll asking a simple question, how is that spin ? Because I pointed out that people thought more houses were flooded in Harvey than there actually was ? That's not spin that's enlightenment …

Is Galveston a suburb?

On another note If we're comparing just city vs city (Houston vs. Dallas), I'd have to give the nod to Houston despite the ridiculous zoning, city leaders and infrastructure. DFW as a whole is another animal that Houston can't really compete with.

Its part of the Houston/Woodlands/Baytown/ or whatever they are calling it now MSA so I would say Yes it is a suburb and simi-anchor city much like Plano is as well...

Anchor Cities by definition are not suburbs.

I said simi-anchor which is a homemade term that I thought would be easy to understand. Suburbs don't normally have downtowns either but you say Plano has one, as does Galveston...

Let me help you out here. People who who say the cities are completely different are usually:

1) Houston people who have delusions about how important and grand their city is and think Dallas could not possibly compete on any level.
2) Dallas snobs who think their city is just so much nicer and luxurious to the point that Houston is a mosquito infested hell hole to them.
3) People from other parts of the state that love one city and hate the other.

Whereas people who see more similarities than differences have usually:

1) Lived in both.
2) Are not from Texas.
