Mt. Holly, Minnesota: Thriving Metropolis

Mike Haeg is an American hero. In the spirit of the pioneers, he has founded his own town in Minnesota. It’s has a population of 4, and according to the town newspaper, the literacy rate is 25%. Haeg is a true renaissance man, serving as the town’s mayor, chamber of commerce, justice-of-the-peace, and town drunk. According to its listing on Google Maps, “The City of Mt. Holly is Minnesota’s newest community, a guerilla ad agency, and a picnicking xanadu all wrapped up in one.” It’s a xanadu, folks! And with exports of advertising, birdhouses, and old jokes, Mt. Holly’s economy is well suited for this crazy, post-9/11 world. It’s all very impressive.
