I have no important comments in particular to say about this quiz. I am not from Michigan nor have I any important Michigan stories.I went to the Detroit airport once, it was ok. Now you've wasted your time reading this comment when you could have been doing another quiz. Maybe one of mine, they're ok. Go do that instead of reading this time wasting comment. -Wolfcam

Most of these cities are not really cities. They are suburbs of Detroit.

Marquette is bigger than Sault Ste Marie, and Traverse City. Kentwood should be on here., amongst other cities.

It's odd to me that several sources list cities of well over 70K people, yet these do not seem to appear at all in the source for this quiz. So are some sources fabricating large cities, or are other sources COMPLETELY IGNORING them? It's beyond frustrating!
