Yes but the same rule applies. Which one do you think people around the world care about more?

I've met people in Singapore who know about Dallas, and people in Hong Kong and India know about it. None of them have even heard of San Antonio.

Same thing. If Fort Worth were a bigger city, it wouldn't affect Dallas in any way at all. Not even the slightest, it would just help Dallas in the end.

Dallas will fight back. Dallas isn't going to lie down and take it and be second to Fort Worth. Heck, why don't we change the name of DART to FWART while we are at it??

Fort Worth will probably get it's own transit system eventually, so it doesn't need to be called DART.

Dallas will keep its DART. Like I said, Dallas will fight this. They will not be second to Fort Worth.

You don't think Fort Worth has been trying to defeat Dallas. Remember Amon Carter?? He started the first TV station in Texas in Fort Worth and said he doesn't care if anyone in Dallas sees it and badmouthed Dallas for years. Dallas had the last laugh as it started WFAA and KDFW shortly after and still has them(and no Fort Worth cannot have them)they have been fixtures in downtown Dallas for years.

If you want further proof, take a look at the comment made by someone on this thread that DFW Airport was in Fort Worth. A small arm of Fort Worth borders the Airport on the southwest, but it is mostly bordered by other cities like Euless, Grapevine and Irving. Also, bordering the Airport is not the same as being in a city itself. The Airport is owned by both Dallas and Fort Worth, it takes a DFW address, and the Airport lies in both Dallas and Tarrant counties.

Fort Worth has already got Dallas beat for its downtown, the arts district, and general friendliness. The only thing Dallas gets out of being bigger is worse traffic.

Dallas has a huge and picturesque downtown and arts district. Fort Worth can't even compare. They have the stockyards and thats it.
