Veterans should be a thing of the past.

Some important facts

In the previous post, William has made a fairly large number of startling allegations. As I am a busy man, I’m afraid that I shall only have time to address one.

Lake of the Woods, MinnesotaIn the post, Will writes that my hometown of Albany in the great state of New York is “a small, po-dunk town”. At the acknowledged risk of veering into a tu quoque fallacy, we will examine the ground from which Will is making this argument.

At some point in the early 1980s, the great calamity of William’s birth befell our fair nation. To the best of my knowledge, this occurred in Lake of the Woods, Minnesota. By clicking on the name there, you can go to the county’s official website, which will immediately assail you with a looped sound effect of splashing water that (as far as I can tell) is supposed to evoke fishing and canoeing in the mind of the visitor, but only succeeds in making you think that there’s something wrong with your toilet.

Continuing down the path of enlightenment, we learn that (as of the 2000 census) the population of Lake of the Woods is 4,522 souls. Although Will may believe this to be a significant tally, remember that Will and other Minnesotans have only very recently come down from the trees, and that their lower primate brains are ill-equipped to deal with such complex mathematics as counting.

The population of Lake of the Woods County does not compare favorably with that of the City of Albany, as almost 100,000Some typical residents of Lake of the Woods people live in Albany proper, and more than a million reside in the extended metropolitan area. If Lake of the Woods has a “metropolitan area”, it most likely consists of a collection of ice fishing shanties. According to my high school’s website, there were almost twice as many students in my school district the year I graduated than there are in Lake of the Woods.

Po-dunk, sir? I think not.
