I agree. Mostly what we get I would call "innocent ignorance." It's usually along the lines of a backhanded compliment like, "You won't believe this is" or "Who knew this existed in" flyover country, Columbus, Ohio, etc

Our reputation is just that we don't have one at all, or that of a boring, white bread nowheresville with nothing to do. Either can be corrected easily enough

It might be ironic, really. Dry New York humor

So these city population estimates should be coming out any time now, right?

^ I don't know about those city population estimates, but apparently U-Haul's annual migration trends report just came out.  Columbus rose one spot and is now in the top 10 as a destination for U-Haul moves:

There really is something exciting about census releases; hard to explain why, but I'm absolutely fascinated by everything to do with population growth, stagnation, depletion, demographic changes, etc.

879,170. A gain of over 15,000.  Still just barely ahead of Fort Worth and Charlotte. Over 15,000 more than Indianapolis now.

Of the 25 largest cities in the US, Columbus was number FOUR in growth rate over the past year.

-Seattle
-Fort Worth
-Charlotte

then Columbus. Growth rate of 1.79%

*Renn could have at least mentioned Columbus being number four on the list while babbling on about other cities. *hmmph!*

Approximately 5,000 behind San Francisco and 13,000 behind Jacksonville.

Only Midwest city in the top 15 fastest growing cities.
