More choices that I dont agree with at all.

I live in a city of 70,000 in a CSA of 2.9 million.

Its not a town or a suburb, its a small city.

it would be better if the list read as follows:
Mega City: 2,000,000+
Big City: 600,000- 1,900,000
Medium Sized City: 400,000- 599,000
City: 250,000- 399,000
Small City: 50,000- 249,000

anything under that shouldn't be in a question asking "what size CITY pop. do you live in?"

Where's 500K-999K? My city fits in that category and I can't vote because that option's not there.
