    5 Most Famous Iowans ever

    I saw the Shawn Johnson thread....and this got me thinking about the most famous Iowans ever......and I would guess that she has the makings of being on this list.

    Here is my top 5:

    1. John Wayne: actor, Winterset
    2. Johnny Carson: TV entertainer, Coming
    3. Herbert Hoover: U.S. President, West Branch
    4. Ann Landers: columnist, Souix City
    5. Grant Wood: painter, Anamosa

    I would add to the "new school":

    -Ashton Kutcher
    -Shawn Johnson
    -(Soon) Harrison Barnes

    Thoughts?

    Henry wallace was pretty famous in his time.


    “Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals. They are complementary.”
