Untitled[edit]

This article is poorly written and needs to be improved, though I'm not particularly eager to tackle the job at the moment. I am, however, removing the following text from the "Early Life" section: "Three other Eagle Scouts, from different troops, became Nobel laureates: Robert Coleman Richardson in physics, and Peter Agre and Dudley R. Herschbach for chemistry." Had these three scientists been in the same troop as Reines the coincidence would merit inclusion in the article. However, because they were in different troops, the sentence is about Eagle Scouts and not about Frederick Reines. It therefore does not belong in this article -- unless we also want to list all the Nobel laureates from New Jersey, NYU, Case Western, UC-Irvine, etc. Those lists don't belong in this article and neither does the Eagle Scout list. The same information is available at List of notable Eagle Scouts.

I agree with you about eliminating that sentence. In fact, I just eliminated it. Cardamon 00:17, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
