I appreciate your humor, but really, let's not give anybody the wrong idea.

In my opinion, I would say after Chicago the most important cities in the Midwest would be: 1. Minneapolis/ St.Paul 2. Detroit. 3. Columbus 4. Indianapolis 5. Kansas City 6. St.Louis 7. Cleveland 8. Cinnati. 9. Milwaukee 10. Louisville 11.Grand Rapids. 12 Omaha.

Surprisingly, no mention of Detroit or Indianapolis. Detroit MSA is still over four million residents, bigger than any of the cities you listed. And Pittsburgh is borderline eastern.

St Louis
Cleveland/Indy Interchangeable at No. 3 and 4

I would say that Detroit and Minneapolis for sure. The other two after that can be more disputed.

Definitely Detroit and Minneapolis.

After that probably St. Louis and Cleveland, but there are good arguments for Cincinnati, Columbus, Indianapolis, and Kansas City to be in the the number four, maybe number three slot.

I completely agree. Chicago is in its own tier. Minneapolis and Detroit in the next tier. Then I would say St. Louis, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Milwaukee, and Kansas City are all in the next tier, but its debatable who are the top two from that group.

Detroit and Minneapolis clearly either 1 or 2, and its increasingly difficult to say which is more prominent than the other.

I think St. Louis has a pretty firm claim on the 3 spot.

I was going to give 4 to Cincy, but look at Cleveland-size of its CSA, three major sports, theatre district, RNC, one of the few cities with heavy rail. Its unlikely that its rivals will ever get any of that stuff, so Cleveland number 4. Even with its decline and the surge of others, its really hard to say with a straight face that Columbus or Indy is more important than Cleveland.
