Ya know, I didn't even know that! No, Tony Shalhoub isn't related to me. Jonathon is related to Tony on his mothers's (the Lebanese) side, while he and I are related on his father's (the German) side. Clear as mud, right?

Not while I was a student there, but Axl Rose (then William Rose) went to my HS, and Shannon Hoon from Blind Melon and most of the members of GNR were from my hometown...

Amelia Erhart taught at Purdue (in the town I grew up in) and started her last flight from there.
Orville Reddenbacher was a student there.
Lots of sports folk went through Purdue.
David Byrne went to my college.

I know there's others, but I can't think of them.

Michael Richards (Kramer) went to my high school. Didn't know him, would have taken the cake for this thread before the idiot started in on the racism .

Belinda Carlisle (singer) also went to my high school and so did Marion Jones of olympic fame. She was amazing to watch on the track. She had her own coach because the other weren't giving her any competition.
