I moved this from "Robert. S. Smith", removing the full stop after his first name. My attention was drawn to it by an anonymous user editing from behind an AOL proxy. That user made an edit deliberately vandalising the page to draw attention to this problem. While I'm grateful for having my attention drawn to the problem, and for the civility of the vandalism, there are better ways of asking for help. If the person who did that reads this, then please next time either post a request at the Wikipedia:Help desk, or take a few seconds to create an account, and do it yourself. --Hughcharlesparker 17:26, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
Aye, that was me. Had to download FireFox in order to make an account, damn near impossible for an AOL or IE user to ever make one as the number of accounts made in the last 24 hours always seems to be maxed out. Thank you for fixing the article and pointing me in the right direction.--Sestet 1:32, 18 May 2006 (EST)
Random Question - is this Justice the father of Daily News political reporter Ben Smith? He's fairly important in the New York City political scene and perhaps this deserves a mention if true?
