So Does This Mean That Loving County, Texas Will be Renamed Cheating County?

From Yahoo Finance:

Gawker’s Gabrielle Bluestone has uncovered that there are precisely three ZIP codes across the country that have no record of Ashley Madison users. That’s ZIP codes, not area codes. And what do they have in common? They’re partially lacking two things: the internet and a large number of people.

Nikolai, Alaska (99691) — Population: 94 (2010 Census)

Perryville, Alaska (99648) — Population: 113 (2010 Census)

Polvadera, New Mexico (87828) — Population: 269 (2010 Census)

If this is accurate, then what can be said for Loving County, Texas

population 82?

That county’s only community (unincorporated) is Mentone (not Mentos) – population 19 – and is attached to zip code 79754.

GoogleMaps indicates that that zip code covers most, but not all of Loving County:


That doesn’t also contain the outline of the county, but MapQuest does:


So, unless the boundaries of that zip code were drawn to include all 82 people in Loving County, then there are at least two zip codes (maybe even three) encompassing parts of a county with a population of 82 that have Ashley Madison accounts.

Memo to christianists: If you think you lost the culture wars when Obergefell v. Hodges was decided, think again.  As usual, you have met the heterosexual enemy – probably in church – and it is yourselves.
