So true so true. I think the original question should be "Why do we hear so much about Texas and California?" Well let's see, California #1 in population, Texas #2 and so on and so forth therefore, which are the loudest (maybe you were referring to boastful and egocentric, I agree with that too). I will say yes, both are important, but as stated earlier, all of the states are important and contribute to our economy. I like the idea of us being states that are united. Maybe I'm on to something?

I would have to give the "Forgotten State" award to either Vermont, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, or maybe even Idaho.

Well i dont think New Mexico goes under that category anymore.. now that were growing rapidly. I love how we only have 2 million, its nice not to live in a place that is sooooo crowded.

Idaho.. probably falls under most forgotten .

Well Texas and California are not the only important states. Every state has things it contributes and that makes them important too.

California and Texas have the biggest populations, and some of the biggest cities, that is probably why.

2 reasons: they were both their own countries before, and the people who live there are really self-absorbed. i wouldn't want to live in either one. give me boston, chicago, seattle, philly, atlanta any day...

It's true, they were both independent at one time. Yet so was Hawaii, and nobody says horrible things about people who live there.
