Cool. I'm not offended at all. I don't really define anything, but I do conceptualize a "city" as an urban agglomeration that is more or less KC-sized or bigger.

And it's the fifth- or sixth-biggest metropolitan area in the United States. Kansas City hovers between 25 and 30.
You do not. I think of Philadelphia as a "big city". Seattle is kind of my upper end of mid-sized.
