Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to talk about the fact that each of 3 states I've been visiting have populations smaller than Dallas but have 2 senators each. I get the fact that it means that small states won't be ignored.
I do think it means is that people in big states are going to forget how lucky they are, however. Manchester, NH has one good art gallery, but only a population of about 105,000. Portland, ME has a population of 68,000 and a so-so art gallery. Fort Worth, TX, in comparison, has two good galleries, and one so-so gallery. This probably isn't surprising if you think about it, but when you visit the place from a "true big city," you're inclined to think that the population is hard done by.
I guess I might have enjoyed visiting here more if I was the "nature type," but I'm not so it's been a bit of a bummer so far.
