Robert Chew or Robert F. Chew?[edit]

I see someone has renamed this article to 'Robert Chew' citing unecessary disamb. I believe however that he was actually known by the name 'Robert F. Chew'. It is this name that "is most frequently used to refer to the subject in English-language reliable sources" – see his name in the list of references in the article, and refer to WP:Common Name. Any comments anyone?–Kiwipat (talk) 07:34, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

Prop was a nice drug kingpin, certainly not a manipulative one[edit]

For eg his dying words to Marlo were along the lines of "but I treated you as a son", and there was intentional bitter irony from the writers that Cheese, a really nasty, unpredicatable and jung ho piece, basically suceeded him, but as a eunuch, remember "One other thing; price of the brick going up." Theres a kind of moral there. Im not convinced by "But your edit summary is pretty much the def. of manipulative: avoiding clashes by businessing around" - so basically something like honesty is the classic ruse to mask dishonesty. Also "businessing around". Those are words now? Ceoil (talk) 01:29, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

I agree. I can see a case for "Omar on one side holding a spade, and Marlo on the other holding a shovel", but overall, he was much, much less manipulative than pretty much everyone else in the show. I don't think this is a notable thing to say about the character and it is inaccurate to characterize him this way in the very first sentence. Charles35 (talk) 01:49, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
Joe was kind of like the Jay Landsman of the drug dealers. He managed to hold a high position among the other drug dealers without really making any enemies. In the same way, Landsman did everything he was told and never pissed anyone off or participated strongly in politics. That, and they are both very overweight ;) Charles35 (talk) 03:07, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
