    Famous folks from Lexington?

    What do you think of our list of celebrities who've said they grew up in or currently live in Lexington? 

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

    Did we forget anyone?

    For a couple reasons, the list should be restricted to people that are originally 'from' Lexington, and omit people that are 'from' somewhere else, and now live in Lexington.  First, it's more interesting and pride-inducing to know what famous people were produced by the area, and that's what the title of the article infers "...from Lexington".

    Ted Williams lived in Lexington, and so did former corrupt FBI agent John Morris, who was visited at his home by Whitey Bulger.

    Agreed.  A celebrity who lives in a town for a short time (while they play for a local team, etc.) should not be on the list.

    Among the missing from your list is the only famous person I could think of to have come from Lexington, Matt Nathanson, a nationally charting, contemporary folk/rock/alternative rock artist.
