You guys are ridiculous!

"he takes a strong anti-abortion stand on issues, most notably on abortion"

?????

What's Congressman Lynch's stance on the Department of Redundancy Department?

huh? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.6.159.88 (talk) 03:15, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Health Care Rally/Debate[edit]

I have noticed this article is getting increased attention since it became clear that Rep. Lynch has been on the fence regarding a public healthcare option and may run in the special election. DO NOT edit this article to reflect that policy point without AT LEAST citing it. If the remarks appear inflammatory as opposed to simply informative of the congressman's positions, I will Undo them immediately. Alex (talk) 13:24, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Checking against GA criteria[edit]

GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS for lead, layout, word choice, fiction, and lists):
    Prose good, I note one statement "As of 2010[update], Stephen and Margaret Lynch live in South Boston with their daughter Victoria Bailey Lynch (born c.2000) and their niece Crystal Shaughnessy (born c.1995)." that has triggered the category Category:All articles containing potentially dated statements, that may need addressing in future
    Yeah, as soon as an article from 2011 mentions the family situation, I'll advance the date. —Designate (talk) 01:33, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
    OK
    Complies sufficiently with MoS
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
    References check out, the first EL[1] is used as ref#2 so should be removed from ELs as per WP:EL
    Technically the ref is one page from the site, whereas the EL is the whole site. —Designate (talk) 01:33, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars, etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
    Not sure why we need File:Joemoakley.jpg , I know Lynch succeeded him, but does the picture add anything to the article?
    I think it's OK to have tangential images if they don't overwhelm the article. It's your call I guess. —Designate (talk) 01:33, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
    No problem. Jezhotwells (talk) 01:39, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:
    One query. On hold for seven days. Jezhotwells (talk) 14:14, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
    OK, I am happy to pass this as GA. Congratulations! Jezhotwells (talk) 01:39, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

recent edits[edit]

i don't really want to get involved in these reversions, but i think that the original version looks better. that also doesn't mean the content of the proposed version isn't alright as well- it can just be integrated. just my two cents.. minorCOLOSSAL (talk) 21:27, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
