It's not where you're born it's where you're from. Also, you can be "from" two different states.

Indeed. I consider myself to be from two different states. Ironically, I was born in neither of them. So technically, I'm from more than two states.

"Politically, the concept came to the United States in the nineteenth century when it was first applied to James K. Polk, a relatively unknown Tennessee politician who won the Democratic Party's 1844 presidential nomination over a host of better-known candidates. Polk won the nomination on the ninth ballot at his party's national nominating convention, and went on to become the country's eleventh president."

For 2 minutes I typed Pat and just stared at her picture. I knew she was the winningest coach in NCAA history when she retired and was the Lady Vols coach and had to quit due to Alzheimer's but just could not think of her last name.

I think Dolly Parton was born in a town called "Pittman Center" (I think Locust Ridge might have been the name of the road she lived on). Either way, I think she is "from" Pigeon Forge, the town usually associated with her and home of Dollywood.
