    If you have a rearview mirror in your car that auto-dims, that's also from one of 4 companies in Holland that make them.
    Damn your hometown John

    I have 2 hometowns - Atlanta, where I was born and Birmingham, where I live now.
    Atlanta is famous for many things...
    Martin Luther King
    Margaret Mitchell
    Jimmy Carter
    Ludacris
    Whitney Houston
    Coca-Cola
    and Usher loves Atlanta so much he claims it is his hometown..even though he's REALLY from Tennessee
    Oh and I amost forgot...
    The Braves

    Birmingham is famous for
    this big naked butt statue over on Red Mtn. named Vulcan - http://www.neel505.com/images/Vulcan.jpg
    Also "the birmingham jail" where MLK once spent the night and wrote a widely published letter.
    It's nickname is 'The Magic City' I think because of the steel boom here way back when.
    Courtney Cox is from B'ham
    And oh yeah, there's this guy named Ruben around here somewhere.
    Look, I love me most...If I could run across the beach into my own arms, I would.
