Copyvio text removal[edit]

A fair amount of the text that formed the core beginnings of this article were apparently put here by Cyro's publicist. Unless permission is explicit, much of that text is a copyvio from Baptista's website at http://www.cyrobaptista.com/page.cfm?content=bio. I'm just trying to rework the text because much of it is already wikilinked and it seems a shame to lose much of the info which deserves to be in the article. There is a fair amount of publicity puffery and peacock words however and this really needs to be scrubbed a bit to eliminate the excessive superlative adjectives. The man's career is obviously vast and varied; it doesn't need pointers to how wonderful he is. Pigman 19:33, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
