I just love this thread! I wish I could go down and have a margarita with my Houston adversaries on the roof of Cafe Adobe (is that still there?).

Downtown. While neither are as big and urban as the Northeast, Chicago, and San Francisco metros, they are developing very fast and I love the momentum that is going on in those areas. Not to mention I like urban living and like being in the middle of the action.

Continental, which blows away AA easily. The MUCH better airline and has one countless awards. AA is no more than a truck stop in the sky. Then, ExpressJet, which runs on its own AND operates regional flights for many airlines (Continental, Delta, even the crappy AA).

Or was? It still is, and will stay that way for a while. 2.2 million people in the city limits.

But Houston is easily a bigger terrorist target and means more to the nation than Dallas ever would. This is no attack at Dallas, but it is true. Houston with all of those refineries would just set of a chain reaction and more and more would blow up. Add to that the Port, and you have a big problem. Houston was recently listed as a major target city along with LA, Chicago, NYC, and DC. So no, Dallas is not more of a target.

I don't think Houston being mentioned as a target to get bombed means that it is much more important than Dallas. It just means there is something that is big in America and it's something we covet.

Default Yes Dallas is more

Dallas is better looking, day or night, and has probably the worst traffic out of the three cities, I have gone to work with my sister at Embassy Suites and people from LA and Houston complain that Dallas has the worst traffic ever, although the road systems in Houston I have heard to be worse, but the traffic here is worse in Dallas, and Yes Dallas is the most creative in architecture and best looking, LA and Houston are only good for a lot of lights at night. I have looked up pics of all downtowns and yes Dallas is much less boring, and actually Dallas is my favorite city. Pics are first LA, then Houston, then Dallas, divided by daytime downtown pics.
