St. Paul

According to some Walt Mink bios, the band formed in Minneapolis. That's not really true. Macalester College (which the three original members attended, and where the band's namesake, the late Professor Walt Mink taught) is in St. Paul, the other Twin City. The difference between St. Paul and Minneapolis is that St. Paul is the world's biggest small town, and Minneapolis is the world's smallest big city.

In case you can't tell, I'm from St. Paul. I live in San Francisco now, though. The band lives in New York now -- or at least John and Candice do.

I didn't attend Macalester, and I don't know the members of Walt Mink.
