Pippa Norris[edit]

The stub template had been modified so that all stub articles had a paragraph about a Political Scientist named Pippa Norris. I deleted this paragraph and returned the stub template to a previous version.--Modernhiawatha 01:42, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

I found another page with a Pippa Norris paragraph: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bradley_A._Smith I deleted the Pippa Norris paragraphs from the Bradley_A_Smith page and paste them here for the record, however the Pippa Norris stub is still on the Bradley A. Smith page, under the 'External Links' section. Here is what I deleted:
