Ten random things: May 3

Ten recent inductees to the New Jersey Hall of Fame, and their connections to that state:

  1. Wally Schirra, astronaut (born in Hacksensack)
  2. Judy Blume, author (born in Elizabeth)
  3. Frankie Valli, musician (born in Newark)
  4. Alice Paul, suffragist (born and died in Moorestown Township)
  5. Susan Sarandon, actor (grew up in Edison)
  6. Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States (Governor of New Jersey)
  7. Jack Nicholson, actor (grew up in Neptune City)
  8. Danny DeVito, actor (born in Neptune City)
  9. Michael Graves, architect (practice based in Princeton)
  10. Carl Lewis, athlete (attended high school in Willingboro Township)

This is the third class of inductees to the New Jersey Hall of Fame. Personally, I would have inducted Woodrow Wilson before Jon Bon Jovi (class of 2009)or Norman Schwarzkopf (2008), but what do I know?
