since when are any of these things characteristic of east texas? (which is more humid than the atlanta area, by the way). and there is cattle in georgia as well as cowboys. as a matter of fact, the texas cowboy is a descendant of the southern cowboy

That's being nit-picky. You know what pirate was talking about. He/She(sorry) was calling the area the Milan of the Southwest. Meaning there is no other city in the region that can touch the quality and/or quantity and atmosphere when it comes to fashion as Dallas. Not necessarily trying to say that Dallas is comparable to Milan.

However, we have more in common with LA than NM or AZ.

What's your point? If not for Fort Woth's side of the metropolitan division Dallas would be trailing Chicago at that.

Houston has a lot more millionaires than Dallas.

They're always hand in hand, one wins in one thing the other in another.

Can't support them? Your not even trying to prove what you say.
I have never read any article that states DFW has more millionaires. EVER. But whatever.

Cities/Townships with the highest per capita income in Texas:

Actually in the top 10 cities/areas by per capita income in Texas, Houston Metropolitan area has 5 (Piney Point Village-3, Hunters Creek Village- 5, Bunker Hill Village- 6, West University Village- 9, Hillshire Village-10) cities where as DFW Metroplex has 2 (Westover Hills-1, Highland Park-4).

I could just as easily have argued with that.

You're just being way to egotistical, for you to be talking about higher upscale shopping is like a Houstonian talking about better downtown renovations and taller buildings.

Get over yourself- neither is better/worse. That's why this thread is this long, if one was so much better it would be over by now.

Go and cut your ego down a few notches first. By the way learn how to spell "millionaire & billionaire" first...
