I see that article has got the black Dallasites seething . Overcooked Oatmeal is a trip.
LOL...the audacity of someone from FTW calling anything "ratchet". Hell, even Black Dallasites look down on those from Ft. Worth.

They think we're not catching the shade that they keep throwing at Houston, so when we retaliate, they get offended. What's new? It happens every few pages.

I'm just playing their game, though. When they're ready to act civilized, then I will be, too.

No doubt that S.A. is #1 in tourism, but if people from, let's say, Canada are asked-"What is the city that first comes to mind when you think of Texas"- I believe they'll say Dallas more than San Antonio or Houston.
The list of most poupular cities in Texas from most to least...

1. Dallas
2. San Antonio
3. Houston
4. Austin
5. El Paso
6-at least 12. Any small town in this state that's been mentioned in the media
13. Fort Worth ( te he he)
By Dallas, you often mean Arlington... a completely separate city from Dallas.

Dallas clearly missed the bus back in the day when it came to annexing new areas. Unfortunately, they are now almost 100% blocked by incorporated suburban cities... the only way Dallas will be able to expand is UP... which probably explains their 0.8% increase in population at the 2010 census... that or they are just that unpopular =)

I sorry but had to comment when this is said^^^ Why in the heck would Arlington be in the picture??? lol it's a suburb it's feeds off of Dallas and FT Worth. All surrounding areas do North Richland Hills, Southlake, Plano, Addison, Richardson, etc. Just like Houston "The woodlands" are a suburb feeding off of Houston just like Baytown, Memorial, Sugarland, Katy, heck even Galveston lol Dang no disrespect but don't count Arlington as a major powerhouse again. Please

How would you explain an enclave city??? Answer: A city that has limits outside of it's jurisdiction Dallas has land in between these suburbs fortunately not sure if it can expand from it but sure does make an impact because you just cant seem to get away from Dallas no matter how far you drive they might just own that lake right around the corner. lol

Just an example: Atlanta is landlocked so is,
St. Louis
Atlanta
Denver
Salt Lake City
Phoenix
Washington, DC
Minneapolis
Las Vegas
Cincinnati or Indianapolis

yeah annexing makes your city seem big and powerful, which is cool but don't doubt that Dallas can come to surprise I like Houston too just don't bash Dallas.

The Woodlands and Sugar Land are the only Houston suburbs that resemble the suburbs in DFW with big business districts (Plano, Irving, Addison, Richardson, etc.). Suburbs like Katy, Pearland, and Cypress are just bedroom communities.

Soooooo just because Dallas suburbs are bigger than Houston's means that they can claim the crown?

Hmmm I wonder, Ive said this before but why doesn't anyone get on L.A. or New York who have soooo many suburbs in their metro or Chi Town WTH you know? Don't act like Dallas is just stupid for letting their suburbs get big and Houston "the biggest inland city" is soooo smart because they have more land. Like I said it's still a suburb lol
