Willie Nelson likes to tell the story about his birthplace, Abbott, Texas. According to Willie, the town's population never increases: when a baby is born, a man leaves town.

Abbott it seems has some unique population characteristics, somewhat like those of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota. In Abbott, everyone is fertile, and there are no multiple births.

Well, there is a Westchester County hamlet that seems to have different characteristics.

Olivia-Rose was added to the population rolls this morning, but no one left town.
