Seriously? Since Atlanta hosted the '96 Summer Games, I would think that would give it greater international recognition.

They are both great cities for living but If U are one of those white people that love living around their own kind then Miami will not be the place for U.

After the various threads on C-D discussing whether racism is more prevalent in the U.S. vis-a-vis the U.K., Canada, etc., I just want to thank you for representing our country so well.

I think they will all be known by *most* people in the UK but I would guess Dallas & Miami would probably be at the front. Wouldn't like to say which would be best known though.
