With all due respect ironcouger, Miami is just as important to its corner of the continent as Seattle is to your part of the continent.

Consider them "bookends" in a way. Both are huge partners to their adjacent offshore regions, both are huge international gateways, and both have very strategic importance as trade and transportation hubs - both via ports, and as air gateways.

I would seriously place them on an even playing field.

I think it's probably a good bet that the cities that the Dept. of Homeland Security has identified as most threatened are probably a good indication of those cities that should be considered to be more important to national security (as compared to homer-spun pride). Can this thread be closed? No offense to Des Moines and Little Rock...

Everybody just picks the list that displays their city the best. Thats all it is.

Solid post.
