THE QUESTION: WHO ARE SOME OF COLUMBIA'S MOST FAMOUS PAST RESIDENTS?

The planned community of Columbia has been home to an array of personalities. Aaron McGruder, creator of "The Boondocks" comic strip, is a native of the town. Actor Edward Norton -- grandson of Columbia developer James W. Rouse -- also grew up in Columbia and attended the Columbia Center for Theatrical Arts, a nonprofit children's acting school and summer camp. Then there's Linda R. Tripp, whose secret recordings of White House intern Monica Lewinsky led to a presidential impeachment. Her Hickory Ridge home was often staked out by television satellite trucks after her tape recordings of conversations about Lewinsky's sexual relationship with President Bill Clinton became public.
