Hi Dave,

Clever indeed!  That _is_ pretty neat!

But zipcodes can often include portions of multiple cities. 
Assigning the entire zip codes to a single city might 'clean' the 
input data pretty nicely and consistently ... but it will cost 
you a bit in accuracy, and may tick off a few users as well.
