    Dick Gregory one of the more overrated people of all time. Maybe a world record at that.

    All home Vol meets cancelled!

    This was posted on here a few days ago. What a disgrace. I don't think such a thing would ever happen at Oregon. Maybe Beth Alford-Sullivan would show me the drawings now. But probably not.

    Tom Black Track survives on Wikipedia

    I have logged off of Wikipedia for good but I went over there tonight to see if my Tom Black Track entry survived, figuring it was gone. What a surprise to see it made the cut! Many thanks to...
  7. Master Editor III, or Most Plusquamperfect Looshpah Laureate

    That's how this Wikipedia nerd editor describes himself. I guess this is typical Wikipedia terminology.

    I hope our own Lopen is not as big of a dork as this guy.

    No doubt Wikipedia is...

    Doug Atkins

    VFL (Vol for Life) Doug Atkins passed away this morning. I always wonder about his high jumping marks. The bio at the Bears site said he won the SEC with a 6-6 leap. Not true. He never won the...

    Thanks, Lopen. You are much more involved in it than me. I liked to piddle around and correct this and that, usually with a reference. I do not like filling in blank references because it confuses...

    What are the rules there for posting pictures of paintings? If you go to Picasso's Wiki article, there are many images of his paintings.

    Posts edited to take out profanity. Sorry.

    Can you tell I'm pissed, Steve? But it's true that most are terribly written. You may see a page on a high school that a student started. It will read something like this.

    Lone, it's not possible. Most of the pages on Wikipedia are very poorly done. But a editor Nazi can ruin a good one. They are like bad cops. You hope you don't happen to run into one.

    There are gangs on Wikipedia. People team up on other people on votes. Nerds. Wiki in general is a good source, but my editing days are over. If they delete it, fine.
