Praise[edit]

Shari Lewis was a true benevolent and will always be missed by those who hold her most dear. Rest in peace. --68.99.18.130 00:28, 29 September 2005 (UTC)

Ironic?[edit]

I wanted to put in a link to the MemoryAlpha database and the only reference I can find to Shari Lewis is:

Cause of death[edit]

The cause of death of Shari Lewis is slightly different than the one listed on the Lamb Chop page. Here it is ovarian cancer and on the Lamb Chop page it is uterine cancer. User Bill Seeger

Currently, this page gives uterine cancer as the cause; Lamb Chop (puppet) states that Lewis had ovarian cancer. Also, this page states that she had pneumonia, but does not state that the pneumonia was fatal. Lamb Chop states that it was the pneumonia that caused Lewis' death. I believe that she died of uterine cancer and pneumonia. Can anyone confirm that? If so, both this article and Lamb Chop (puppet) should be corrected to that effect.

Fair use rationale for Image:Sharilewis&lambchop.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Sharilewis&lambchop.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Why were crows controversial in the sixties?[edit]

I may be dumb, but my understanding of the cultural backround of the sixties doesn't hold anything that would make crows controversial. I think it should be clarified in the article what the controversy there was, perhaps with a citation, even. -- Cimon Avaro; on a pogostick. (talk) 15:43, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Guessing they were black, and as such seen as racist by those types who wish to see such. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.255.107.88 (talk) 23:40, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Oh please![edit]

"She was cremated. Her ashes were either given to a friend or family." Banal, equivocal and vulgar. --OhNoPeedyPeebles (talk) 20:41, 29 September 2008 (UTC) What does she was survived by her husband etc mean? Sounds like they had to put up with her bad jokes or something Bouncingmolar (talk) 12:33, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Traditionally, it means she died and that her husband was the surviving or living spouse. ----moreno oso (talk) 12:44, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Abraham Hurwitz[edit]

The Wikipedia article on Shari Lewis, Early Life, states: "... Abraham Hurwitz, a founding member of Yeshiva University ,...". The Wikipedia article on Yeshiva University states that it was founded in 1886. The Wikipedia article on Future American Magical Entertainers states that Abraham Hurwitz was born in 1906. Can anyone explain this apparent discrepancy? Should the Wikipedia article on Shari Lewis be revised to: "... Abraham Hurwitz, an education professor at Yeshiva University, ..."?
