Going through my files, I found this newspaper clipping from 1968.

Even though I was born in Topeka, Kansas, I count Manhattan, Kansas, as my hometown. The only reason I was born at Stormont-Vail is that my mother, an OB-GYN nurse, didn't want to have me where she worked, at St. Mary's hospital in Manhattan. My first home was in Manhattan, on Juliette Ave., which is the address listed on my birth certificate. I have never lived in Topeka.
The text reads:
In Topeka

(From the Topeka Capital-Journal, March 24, 1968)
