Me too but I would put Michael in the "infamous" verses "famous" (not a fan AT ALL).

I moved from Southern California where there were too many to name to Mooresville where there are....too many to name. My best friend is neighbor to Jeff Hammond.

I should have said, "people from, born in".
I'll go back and edit original post. It's my error. Sorry.
Oh okay, I'll give you what little I have since these famous people don't choose to include me in their group.
Wayne Newton has a huge home with grounds that encompass one square mile of land. He keeps horses on that land. His home was located in the boonies but since Vegas has built up so much it is now located in the heart of a very busy part of the city. At Christmastime his home and grounds are decorated to the hilt. His estate is called Casa Shenandoah.

Gladys Knight had a severe gambling habit and was in rehab for a long time. She is now free of the habit but still maintains a home in Vegas and performs very often.

Don't know anything about Evander or any of the other dozens of famous people that live near me. But then, they don't know anything about me either.

Amy Poehler is a current cast member on Saturday Night Live. She co-hosts the news and does Hillary Clinton among many others.

Rich Gedman was a catcher for the Boston Red Sox

Among other things, KC Jones played for the Boston Celtics for 9 seasons and has 8 championship rings because of it. He is also in the Basketball hall of fame.

Crispus Attucks was (I believe) the first person killed in the American Revolution.
