That's funny, Ben. Vince McMahon went to my university, East Carolina University. He majored in business. Guess it didn't work with the XFL!

Sandra Bullock also went here (ECU) for 2 years. During her time here, she won the honor of Watermelon Queen at the Farmville Watermelon Festival, which is about 15 miles from here.

Katharine Whelan, the singer & banjo & ukelele player for The Squirrel Nut Zippers (who are mostly from Chapel Hill), grew up on 5th Street here in Greenville. 5th Street is a mile from where I am now. Her father was an art major at the ECU School of Art (just like me). My figure drawing teacher remembered having taught him in a few classes.

My friend Paul got to shake GW's hand when he visited here a few months ago. He was at the sports coliseum down the street.

When my grandfather was a baby, he was kissed by Mother Cabrini, who would be canonized as Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini.
