Roselle, Illinois in popular culture???

There is an article in Wikipedia - a List of representations of Seattle in popular culture. It is an amazingly extensive list of movies, songs, television, fiction, non-fiction, and video games that reference Seattle. That got me thinking...does Roselle, Illinois, show up in any "popular culture?"
There are actually two references that I know of:
- That's Not My Name by Yvonne Navarro, published in 2000 by Bantam Books, is a suspense story set right here in Roselle.
- An illustration in Steven Kellogg's Santa Claus is Comin' to Town shows a box full of surveys from Roselle, Illinois. (Check out the book and see if you can find the box!)
Are there others? Did Sara Paretsky's V.I. Warshawski ever trek through Roselle (she's been to Schaumburg!)?
If you know of other references to Roselle, post a comment and help us compile a list.
I'm sure we will never rival Seattle, but it will be interesting and fun, all the same.
