Is a Shambip when you are led to believe something is going to bip, but it reality it is ruined, meaning it pibs instead?

webny99:
One thought I had: if the Town of Irondequoit merged with the City of Rochester, it would give the city a much more organic shape, and it would seem more like a true Great Lakes city instead of an inland city with a tiny strip connecting it to the lake. It would also add 51,043 to Rochester's population and bump it back to its rightful place as the 3rd largest city in NY, at least for another census or two.

Looking at my metro (KC area): how about the small inner-ring suburbs in northeast Johnson County (Westwood, Westwood Hills, Fairway, Mission Hills, Roeland Park) be absorbed into Mission?

Or, to take it a step further: all those aforementioned cities, along with Mission, Prairie Village, and Leawood, are absorbed into Overland Park. Merriam would be divided between Overland Park to the east of I-35 and Shawnee to the west - thus, JOCO is down to OP, Lenexa, Shawnee, and Olathe. I suppose Lenexa and Shawnee merge at some point as well, given their combined population is about 125K, compared to 139K for Olathe and 193K for Overland Park - although keep in mind those are based on figures for the current cities, and donít include all the territory that would be annexed. But Iím just trying to give you the picture.

You're gonna merge all that stuff, and not name after it the mythical (but strangely elusive in actual reality) "Shawnee Mission, KS"?

Massachusetts...

Move Ashby and Townsend from Middlesex to Worcester county to remove the odd overhang over Worcester County. They align more with Worcester County anyway.
