Columbus is the world's largest small town, and has been for quite some time. The sidewalks are rolled up at 5. It's all about Ohio State and Ohio State football and state capitol. If it wasn't for those three things, Columbus wouldn't even exist. A lot of kids I went to high school with attended Ohio State, and rhapsodized about how great Columbus is, yet every one of them couldn't wait to come home to the Cleveland area every weekend.
Ok really, all these cities pale in comparison to Chicago, in fact I can't even believe they would even compare these cities with there broke down food, nightclub scene and fashion industry.
The fact they forgot Indianapolis says that whoever wrote the article is an idiot.
Kansas City, really! Columbus Ohio! Minneapolis/St. Paul! Come on now.
Some cities were founded because at the time there was no where else to go and people got stranded there.
