Gypsy Rose Lee[edit]

Did Gypsy Rode Leg pass away on April 26 or April 27, 1970? The "1970" page lists both as her dates of death...

Where are the deaths?

2004 page layout years[edit]

There is a discussion on my talk page on page layout.

For most of the last three hundred years there is inconsistency and duplication between the year in topic paragraph, the "see also" box and what is on the year by topic pages. Prior to 1950 I am pretty convinced we can painlessly (except for sore fingers) delete all of the year in topic paragraphs and ensure that the material goes into a "see also" box, creating such a box where none exists. Post 1950, particularly from the "year in US television" link a lot of material has been added to this paragraph as highlights (sometimes making up most of the page content pointed at).

Personally I think we should still delete the paragraph, keep the box linking to the topic sites and move any particularly important parts of the year in topic paragraph to the main chronological list. This does involve undoing quite a bit of work which someone has done.

Therefore, unlike for prior to 1950 (where I've said no objection= I do it) for post 1950 I won't touch these pages unless a significant number of people agree with the change. (I am also unlikely to get the pre 1950 stuff done before summer unless the service speed improves dramatically).

why can i edit your page, this doesnt make sense. talk--BozMo 14:03, 7 May 2004 (UTC)

Ziploc[edit]

I have removed the 'The Ziploc(c) bag is created' from '1.10 Unknown date' because, accoding to the Dow History website, it was 'test marketed in 1968. --Robby 02:37, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

Never mind, the very next entry explained it; corrected it myself Scix 02:27, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Jim Morrison[edit]

Why is the death of Jim Morrison listed here? Didn't he die in 1971? The article on him supports this...he's also listed under "Deaths" in the 1971 page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.45.173.208 (talk) 17:43, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
