I remember that being an argument at a Selectmen's meeting in Lexington when the Minuteman was proposed. I was in high school at the time and remember my biology teacher, a Watertown native who had a thing against "snooty towns" (not to mention, Lexington was our school's rival, so I think he was coming at it from that angle -either his brother or best friend taught at LHS, so they exploited a friendly rivalry), having a field day with that argument and how illogical it was. Thankfully, Lexington's Board of Selectmen was a bit wiser than some of its NIMBYs.
