    Famous folks from South Boston?

    What do you think of our list of celebrities who've said they grew up in South Boston? 

    Does someone not deserve to be on this list because they weren't around long enough? 

    Did we forget anyone?

    Famous?? Celebrities?!?  The Globe needs to come up with some new feature ideas that don't showcase the paper's legendary (and continually reinforced) provincialism.  This one is just plain dumb.

    That's it?!  Obviously politicians, but beyond that mostly crooks?  I would have expected much better from South Boston.

    Four of the 12 are crooks, and three of those four wouldn't be celebrities outside of Southie. Congratulations for perpetuating a stereotype.

    Thanks everyone for your feedback. We've gone through the list of who else you think should be added and included Joe MoakleyJohn McCormackRaymond Flynn and Archbishop Cushing.

    Unfortunately, they were added after the voting tool was creating, which means they're ineligable to vote on. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Re: Where's Matt Damon or Ben Affleck on this list?

    I think you might be confused with their characters in Good Will Hunting because Damon and Affleck are actually from Cambridge.

    Another update: We've added Barbara Lynch and John Cunniff
