Anyway, there goes my concentration on work for the day. I like this.
Reese Witherspoon is from New Orleans, not Baton Rouge.
Looking at my home county, I’m glad to see Panti Bliss is shown under the “Leadership” category vs the “Culture” category.
Oh! There’s a movie!
That’s what Wikidata says as well, which provides the source data for this project, so I don’t see how it could be misplaced on the map.
Definitely flaws in the system. My closest city, Madison WI, shows Gena Rowlands, who was from Cambria, a small town that isn’t even in the same county, while Cambria shows nineteen-aughts MLB player Davy Jones. Not sure why Gena Rowlands would even be in the conversation for a city that produced Chris Farley and Bradley Whitford.
Unrelated: Going down the Wikipedia rabbit hole, I was quite surprised to find that Stacey Abrams, Liz Cheney, and Kris Kobach were all born in Madison as well.
There are a lot of baseball players. It reflects a Wiki bias.
Darn. I didn’t make the list…
