I really like the Sonic HQ's in OKC too !!! I am impressed with Bricktown too. I like the canal/waterway, that's very creative.

Yep we have two Sonic's just a couple miles away. They have some good chocholate malts!

If Louisville and Oklahoma City had 600 sq. mi. boundaries that surrounded their densest contiguous census tracts Louisville would have a population of 893,983 while Oklahoma City would have a population of 854,263. While Louisville may have a more "urban" core due to it being a much older city, at 600 sq. mi. they aren't that much different as far as density is concerned. Granted, population and density don't directly relate to urbanity, but urbanity has nothing to do with professional franchises.

These numbers are derived from contiguous census tracts, not city boundaries. The city of Houston (as of 2000) has about 1.8 million people in its 600 sq. mi. boundaries, but if you added up the contiguous census tracts that equal 600 sq. mi. there would be about 2.7 million people. The numbers for Oklahoma remove areas within the city boundaries that are low density and add adjacent suburban areas that are high density.
