Again, I'm not arguing against DFW at all. I'm not sure why there are continued posts about it and pictures no less. Frankly it's irrelevant to my points.

Well it's just that DFW can be looked at as one metro area whereas DC-Baltimore cannot. Probably shouldn't say cannot but should not.

Metropolitan areas are one entity. City proper technicalities are pretty much irrelevant these days. No city on earth stops at it's city limits anymore. Metropolitan areas are much more important.

You compared DC-Baltimore to Dallas - Fort Worth their relationship is not the same.

If DC-Baltimore didn't have any connectivity it would not be a CSA. It's a Conurbation or Urban agglomeration, It's not just two separate cities, there two separate metro area with distinct identities. They just run into each other. We can't just add metros to together to make them bigger when they're not.

But there's a difference with that compare to DFW which is one metropolitan.

Atlanta should be worried about Dallas and Houston so rapidly gaining population and gaining in the South.

You do realize both metro areas have been larger than Metro Atlanta for decades, right?

Atlanta has some unique advantages being in the east, closer to the east coast population and being centrally located. Hartsfield-Jackson is a big advantage. And its the only really big metro in a large area. Its a good ways to Miami, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, Detroit and DC.

Atlanta will do fine if Atlanta takes care of its infrastructure issues. It hasn't in recent years. If Atlanta doesn't, then expansions and new businesses will look, not just to Houston and Dallas and Miami, but also to Charlotte, Raleigh, Nashville and Cincinnati.

Cincinnati? Seems to be an odd mention alongside Atlanta's other Sunbelt peers.
