Chicago and even Tokyo has been demoted. I believe Tokyo was just on NYC's level on the last list.
The cities within the tiers are still listed in order of rank.

I mean, has Houston ever hosted an Olympics? Atlanta seems like more of an international city than Houston.

Salt Lake City has also hosted an Olympics. Does that mean anything to you?? Didn't think so. And regarding what it "seems" to you, its called PR and Marketing. Atlanta's gotten pretty good at that over the years. I'm not a huge fan of any Texas city, but there's a reason Houston is the 4th largest city in the nation.

Yes, because their city limits are around 650 square miles. And? Houston's wayyyy bigger than SF by city limits in both population and land, but which one is more important and international?

You know, you are right. There is a reason, and it has to do with land area! 600 sq miles of it. You mad? I can provide you their contact information so you can explain why they're wrong and you're right. And you're more than likely a fan of Houston's because it's everything that Nawlins isn't. Cut the crap and keep it 100.

Have you ever been to Montpelier Vermont? It has a McDonald's for crying out loud!

You are correct. It's bizarre to come across a state house that's practically surrounded by forest.

How in the world is Omaha not at least a Sufficiency City? If Madison and Des Moines made the list, then you would think that Omaha would be as well.

Those were the Winter Olympics. A number of smaller cities have hosted those. But to my knowledge no small cities have hosted the summer Olympics. Those tend to go to big, important cities. Like it or not, Atlanta is the most cosmopolitan, international city in the South, even if other cities might have more wealth. Their airport has among the highest number of international flights in the US. I think that attests to their global pull.

Localized to the US, not to Texas or the greater SE Texas area.

Since when is Dallas a player in finance? I've never really considered it a bigtime tech powerhouse either.
