Do you know your city's population? Any other comments about that? Any fun facts? In 2012, mine was 170,746. My city isn't huge (about 40 sq miles). It's strange to me how I never run into people I know as I'm going about my days and I know some of them still live here. You'd think I'd run into someone, but not nearly as often as you may think. The last time was about 2 yrs ago. By the way, as of July of this year, the unemployment rate is 7%.
