A Place Called Home: Is It Where You’re From Or Who You Are?
The Sultanette revisited this pesky question last week upon returning to her hometown, Madison, Wisconsin. You’re shocked that such a worldly dame hails from the land of curds and corn fields?

Chicago, New York, Paris. Any place but home.
