I feel bad about this, really I do. I like the Burnt Orange boys. And they’ve caught me in a mistake or two. But at least I know that Plano isn’t small. The 2007 population estimate is 260,096. This came up in the following post on Burnt Orange Report today: A small Texas city was identified as the most affluent in the U.S. by the latest Census result. With a median household income of $84,492 in 2007, Plano was the richest city, followed by San Jose in California with a median of $76,963. The relatively unknown city hosts the corporate headquarters of Frito-Lay, JCPenney, Ericsson, Dr. Pepper and Perot Systems. It’s not “relatively unknown” either.
