To John Kenney: I took off your line that began "Although..." because it did not have an ending. Please add it back with the complete thought. I would love to see it. Thanks.
Ah, yes - I had read somewhere that Baker's statement was originally intended to defend Nixon by suggesting that he hadn't known about things. But I couldn't find confirmation, so I wasn't going to add it. And then I forgot and added the half-completed sentence. johnk 04:30, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Calling Howard Baker a "distinguished American statesman" is an opinion and not a fact. I am not slamming Baker, but it's not an appropriate description.--Susan Nunes
I agree, and I've removed that phrase, along with making other edits. JamesMLane 08:14, 10 October 2005 (UTC)
I don't see how he isn't distinguished and a statesman. He was President Reagan's Chief of Staff, a United States Senator, the Senate Majority Leader, and Ambassador to Japan. Sounds both distinguished and statesmanlike to me. (On a side note, Dr. Annis is a friend and former professor of mine.) Steven (talk) 15:40, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
Fixing mechanical items, mainly confused pronoun reference and deleting material not related to Baker
Lots of good info here! 'Went through this and made mechanical corrections, especially relating to complex sentence construction pronoun reference and some dangling modifiers. Also, 'deleted several sentences that talk about other people but don't relate to Baker himself. If it's going to be in THIS article, it should be tied in to make it relevant to Baker.
