The picture[edit]

Is anyone else aware that this picture is the same as the one used for the article on Mirabeau the economist? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 134.10.176.172 (talk) 18:06, 26 March 2007 (UTC).


The war on prose continues[edit]

[1]. Not that this is all bad—in some cases, the 1911 original was too flowery or too opinionated—but almost half of these edits simply flatten good prose. - Jmabel | Talk 01:46, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Spelling[edit]

The heading on his father spells the name Riquetti in the text, but gives it Riqueti in the article title. The French articles use two "t"s everywhere, and all the contemporary documents I've seen give it as "Riquetti." What's the reasoning behind dropping a t here?
