We summarize the current observational evidence for associations between supernova remnants and neutron stars, including radio pulsars, proposed "inactive" young neutron stars, "anomalous" X-ray pulsars, and soft gamma-ray repeaters, and argue that the paradigm that all young neutron stars are Crab-like requires reconsideration.
