Untitled[edit]

This article needs a disambiguation between James MacDonald and this James E. McDonald. Further, the categories at bottom should consistently point to James E. Mcdonald rather than some to James McDonald and others to James E.

Verifiability[edit]

I'm rather concerned that this entry is making a lot of unsourced statements concerning McDonal's intents opinions and relationships with others, as well as a lot of other unsourced references to his work.

It might all be 100% true (or not), but it should still be directly sourced through a citation from a third party such as a biographer or a press report.

weasel words[edit]

I read the article pretty closely and could find nothing that could be classed as "weasel words".

The tag: "This article contains weasel words: vague phrasing that often accompanies biased or unverifiable information." should probably be removed unless someone can point to something in the article that justifies its continued presence.Zedshort (talk) 20:52, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Do the comparison between now and 2009 when I tagged the article. It's actually much improved. I'll pull down the tag. Simonm223 (talk) 21:14, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
