We must have something in North Texas that people want; they are all moving here. The U.S. Census bureau reports that Dallas-Fort Worth was the fastest-growing metro area in the U.S. in the past decade.

We added a whopping 1.3 million people, which is a 25 percent increase over the year 2000.

We are holding tight as the nation's fourth largest metro area, and all we have to do is add about 3 million more people and we will match Chicago, my hometown, and the nation's third largest metro area: They've got 9.6 million to our 6.5 million.

Where are these people coming from?
