2007:

Jefferson County - 709,000

Davidson grew by 50,000 people in 7 years. Jefferson grew by 15,000 people in 7 years.
those are estimates...we wil see when the real census comes out. still louisville is a substantially larger and more dense core county. the square mileage of the counties is similar, and in fact davidson is larger i think by area.

With gas prices heading toward $5 a gallon, Americans may be drawn to a city whose tallest building resembles an oil rig. Maybe they could rename it Dick Cheney Plaza

Louisville MSA is comprised of 14 counties, Nashville's has 13. Nashville's MSA has around 300,000 more people than L'ville's. The estimate's show that since 2000, the Nashville MSA has grown by around 16%, while L'ville's has grown around 6%. Nashville has real professional sports and just from that fact alone, is that hands-down winner of the argument.

By the way, the oil rig is a nice touch. What an ugly, embarrasing building. However, in this case, beauty is TRULY in the eye of the beholder.

I agree and it isn't beautiful in THIS beholder's eyes!

Instead of naming that monstrosity Dick Cheney Plaza, we could just leave his surname out. After all, the damn thing looks to me as if it were designed by some 50 year old nerd, whose wife/mommy wouldn't let him buy a sports car.

But you know, a 15 year old extreme nerd could have even thought of the basic design. I'm a nerd but I wouldn't dare think of something that ugly.

Suggestions for nerd surnames? One that comes to mind is Keith Olbermann.
