Nearly impossible to do well, but fun idea for a quiz. I got a few when I noticed the population hint. I guessed all four over 100,000, but must have spelled Murfreesboro wrong. It might be fun to have a quiz where you guessed the closest city over 100,000 to the geographical center. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to make the quiz.
