    Pff, that's nothing. My common ancestor with JFK at least died in this century. :rolleyes: I think...

    Brown's family may be from Massachusetts, but he himself was born in Kenya. I have the birth certificate!

    (I got it from Kevin Bacon.)

    It doesn't ... it's a puff piece.

    Well, so then Obama and Brown have two things in common at least, being on the relatively short-list of US politicians who look good topless. :p

    In light of the birthers' "controversy," it's kind of interesting that Obama's roots in this country go back to the 1600s.
