Untitled[edit]

I apologize for the error in Gilda's childhood weight. Yesterday I put 193 instead of the 93 that she provides on page 97 of her book. I'm changing it now. Also, I made the footnote for the passage on page 97 separate from the multiple "A B C D ..." footnotes for the same book. I made it separate because it includes a page number, but the "A B C D ..." footnotes don't have page numbers. Today I'm adding to the article another passage from the book, this one from pages 100-101. This one, too, gets a separate footnote so people can see the page numbers. The purpose of it is to correct the error that the article has about Bill Murray. It says few details about Radner's relationship with him were made public when it broke up in the late 1970s. It adds that Radner wrote about the relationship in her 1989 book. Not true. She only mentioned Murray in passing.SantaMonicaLibraryJana (talk) 22:56, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Illness Rewording[edit]

This doesn't sound right:

Even with Wilder's support, she suffered extreme physical and emotional pain during chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment.

Of course she suffered even though he provided support. Perhaps there is a better way to phrase it. Buzzbo (talk) 05:08, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
