Hey, Earl Derr Biggers, the author who created famed fictional detective Charlie Chan, was from Warren, Ohio. I did not see his name under authors. Unless, ... I missed it ... ? L. Thomas W. 20:16, 13 September 2007 (UTC)Thomas

And then, Danny Thomas, comedic actor and singer, famous in 1950's television, was from Toledo, Ohio. I don't see him listed under actors. L. Thomas W. 20:20, 13 September 2007 (UTC)Thomas

um, why is this a category?? what possible purpose does this article serve?

None, really. But hey, who cares? Fantom 19:52, July 23, 2005 (UTC)

Fictional characters[edit]

Can we put fictional characters in this list? Fantom 19:51, July 23, 2005 (UTC)

pecular grouping[edit]

What's with "Miscellaneous Celebrities, Beauty Pageant Winners, Cheesecake Models, etc."

Who decides who's a "Cheesecake" model, versus just a plain "model" (which has another section)? These long section names are rediculous. The whole page needs consolidation, into a few simple groupings. Other bad terms to use are things like "Do-Gooders". Not exactly encyclopedic. --Rob 16:44, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

"Cheesecake model" is a polite term for someone whose "modeling" basically consists of posing nude for the purposes of titillation. There is a pretty solid and objective difference between that kind of model and a regular model, who is hired by designers to model clothes.Acsenray 19:08, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Joseph M. Parker[edit]

Someone using IP addresses and has twice added "Joseph M. Parker (United States Navy) (Petty Officer 3rd Class)" to the "Soldiers, Sailors, etc." section. I won't object to this if it can be shown that this person is indeed someone famous from Ohio. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MarkBrooks (talkcontribs) 16:21, 6 December 2006 (UTC).
