This ranking list is misleading. Omaha is not a small city. In fact, last time I chaecked, the pop. was 440,000.

I would consider Omaha a large city. Does CNN not know that?

LOL, looks like someone failed the math test on comparisons.

Every day there's another one of these stupid lists. The goal is to make so many that every city makes one.

I too wondered about Omaha. Apparently they have a broad definition of "small city."

Amazing how the topic of Omaha just seems to find its way into an inordinate number of message strings in this Forum. :-) I'd liken this to the national media over promoting the New England Patriots of last year and of recent years as being the best NFL team of all time. Nothing but Hype. And the spygate scandal does not help their cause. And the Giants proved that the so called experts were indeed incorrect once again. Same scenario here.

NOT HYPING... defining. It isn't even Omaha promoters bringing this up! Omaha doesn't fit in most descriptions of midsized, and almost no desciprtions of "small". Will you two just stop trying to fuel arguements about this and focus on bashing someone else?
