E. I was born in St. Louis - the second largest city in Missouri. Name another city that (like St. Louis) is the 2nd largest in its state and has a population (2018 estimates) over 300,000. [13 possible correct answers]

[Tucson, AZ (545,975), San Diego, CA (1,425,976), Colorado Springs, CO (472,688), Miami, FL (470,914), Lexington, KY (323,780), St. Paul, MN (307,695), Henderson, NV (310,390), Raleigh, NC (469,298), Cleveland, OH (383,793), Tulsa, OK (400,669), Pittsburgh, PA (301,048), Memphis, TN (650,618), San Antonio, TX (1,532,233)]
Kinda interesting ... despite being the 4th most populous state, and having the most populous city in the US, it only has 1 other city over 250,000 (Buffalo and if trends hold, that'll change after the Census) and only 5 total over 100,000 (as many as CT).

I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

I did learn while researching my Buffalo TD that some think the city's decline will reverse in coming decades as the region's climate and access to water position it as a refuge against the worst of climate change. We'll see.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.
