STEVE MARTIN, ORANGE COUNTY HERO….Sorry, but I cannot let this pass. In a post titled “My favorite things Texan,” Tyler Cowen lists:

Comedian: Steve Martin

Technically, yes, Steve Martin was born in Waco, Texas. But at age 5 he moved to California and then at age 10 to my hometown of Garden Grove. He graduated from Garden Grove High School, worked at Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm, and then attended my alma mater, Cal State Long Beach. Let’s hear no more about Steve Martin being a Texan, OK?
