Birth place[edit]

I am not a regular editor of Wikipedia, but in this video, Bunker himself says that he was born in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Just thought I'd help out by adding it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywSabB8LqnI — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.232.106.65 (talk) 18:31, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Emmy Award[edit]

The award is referred to simply as an "Emmy Award". The organization, "Pacific Southwest Emmy Awards", is not the name of the award - it is a chapter of the main Emmy Awards awarding organization. -- Cirt (talk) 19:26, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

This is a tricky situation. Technically speaking, you seem to be correct. Yet, "Emmy Award", in most people's eyes, means Primetime Emmy Award, and nothing else. So if we write "He's an Emmy Award winning person" when he did not in fact win a Primetime Emmy Award we are misleading our readers, even if it is not our intention. Explaining the situation seems to be best, and that would be too complicated to do in the lead. So I actually agree with you in removing the award in the lead completely, and let the article itself make the distinction. Writing that he is an "Emmy Award" winner without any prior explanation is not acceptable. --Conti| 19:40, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
Alright. I have added further descriptive text info to the lede, per WP:LEAD. Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 19:47, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
That looks fine to me. Usually the lead shouldn't get into details like that, but there's not much else there, so it's not that there's too much text. :) --Conti| 19:51, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. -- Cirt (talk) 19:53, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
