Snow v. Wade

Today a letter linking the lack of snowmen in Ann Arbor to the landmark right to privacy Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade was posted to AnnArbor.com.

The writer marshals the following line of reasoning in support of this proposition: "[P]erhaps one of the reasons [why there are no snowmen] is because so many of the potential "snowmen makers" have been aborted! Over 50 million in United States alone since Roe vs Wade 38 years ago in 1973! What will it take to get the snowmen back?"

I suspect that the author is trolling, but I can't be sure. And that frightens me.


  1. so many thoughts went through my head as i read this headline in my RSS.. and then the byline.. and then the content itself....

  2. I heard that stat on the radio today... as I was gridlocked in traffic on I-35.

  3. Aw poo, they deleted my comment that pointed out Mr. Schafer was employing the Chewbacca defense!
