Not at all. "At least one" does not mean "no more then one" so one has infinitely many different lines each of which is missing at least one natural, and with each actually be missing infinitely many, and all but finitely many, naturals. The collection of all FISONs (Finite Initial Sets Of Natuals) form such a family of sets.

Nope, that doesn't work either, because with infinitely many lines in the form of FISONs, no natural is missing from more than finitely many of those infinitely many lines.
So WM is again totally wrong on all counts.
