NYIT[edit]

Could you please add Harry Hurwitz and Morrie Yohai under "Notable faculty, staff and board members" section on NYIT. Thanks--77788er (talk) 15:48, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks for bringing Harry Hurwitz and Morrie Yohai to my attention in connection to NYIT. First, I only read the NYIT article today, and that because I was trying to rescue this article, and am still working to expand it. Even the Edward Guiliano article is outside my regular interests, I just felt compelled to help rescue it from seemingly dirve-by attacks from disruptive edits. The NYIT article seems in good health, so I don't have much interest is working on it. However, I did read the Wikipedia articles on Harry Hurwitz and on Morrie Yohai]]. I'm afraid I'd need a lot more to go on before placing either one in 'Notable faculty, staff and board members' in the NYIT article. Hurwitz and Yobai are notable for activities outside academia, and these outside notabilities justify each of their Wikipedia articles. But this does not transfer into notable academic. In one case, there is no mention of Hurwitz in his Wikipedia article having a connection with NYIT; for Yohai, there is no indication of what level of college administrator he had at NYIT. The external sources used for the two articles don't help make a case for inclusion.
So, I feel it would not be justified to add the two persons you suggested on the basis of the sources so far available. Keep in mind, even if WP:Academic notability is established, it does not follow that this is sufficient to list under "NOtable faculty, staff, and board members - that is a higher standard. If you come up with a Lot more sources, I can't follow-up. Why don't you take up this work? This would be a good place to begin Wikipedia editing? - Neonorange (talk) 17:03, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

J.D. Salinger[edit]

I accept your decision to delete my new input on J.D. Salinger and I understand your reasoning. Yes, I am one of the publishers of this new book by J.D. Salinger. However, I felt that Salinger fans and readers would want to know about the first legitimately published book by Salinger in 50 years. I tried to write the information in a way to provide information without any hardcore promotion. I suppose you felt differently and I concede to your opinion. I will not attempt to add information in the future that has any direct promotional value to my publishing company.

However, I must assume that some expert on Salinger at some point in the near future will add the information about Three Early Stories. I hope you will believe me when I suggest that this was as much a labor of love as any promotion for me.

Thank you.

Thank You[edit]

Thank You for helping me out on the SR-71 Tomorrow song. I am new here, I do know how to put reliable sources and stuff like that but I was too lazy to just add one up. I like how you change it.

Fixed stray character[edit]

Hope you don't mind that I fixed a stray character that you left on the PC 2014 Close talk page. PaleAqua (talk) 19:23, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

No problem at all! Seems fair, fixed a stray character, message went astray (to me rather than the actual perp, j⚛e deckertalk). I'd say we are all even. All we need now is a photo of the closers sitting in a room holding up current newspapers. B^) - Neonorange (talk) 19:45, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Nice work finding that BAFTA ref for Cane Toads: An Unnatural History‎. I looked for a ref yesterday without success. Meters (talk) 19:25, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Typo?[edit]

Here you said "I do not understand how you can mankind ...."

What does "mankind" mean? Did you mean ".... can make ...."? davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 05:49, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for catching that typo, davidwr. It was iPad auto-correct at its finest. That and my bleary eyes when I proofed. And it was't the only one. I fixed the typos, and just left the run on sentences. I hope my comment now makes better sense. - Neonorange (talk) 14:44, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Editing article[edit]

Hey Neonorange,

just to inform you, the group RedHack itself went several time live on air and told that they are a marxist leninist hacker group. Link: http://emekdunyasi.net/ed/guncel/20787-redhack-imc-tvde-canli-yayina-cikti

I will try to edit the article asap, link correction, grammar, let it look a bit better. Fluxfingers (talk) 11:09, 4 June 2014 (GMT)

Thanks for the note. I will read the article with interest as you improve it. - Neonorange (talk) 14:18, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Selma movie[edit]

Hello, and good to meet you. I've enjoyed your additions and comments on the page, and look forward to the article becoming quite full and an important addition to Civil Rights Movement history. Getting my popcorn ready to watch it now. Randy Kryn 20:27 4 June 2014 (UTC)

I've been watching your edits on several articles on US Civil Rights Movement history with interest. I don't really know much about James Bevel, and I hope to read some of your work. Seeing your post here was a surprise - I happened to be on Hosea Williams Drive when I read it! I would have replied sooner, but I was using an iPhone; I gave up on my first attempt to edit Wikipedia on that device; and I'll never try again.
I have been nibbling at the edges of the Hosea Williams article. I live in the Atlanta area, but far enough from the city that I don't have easy access to large libraries. I am finding better sources now that I have HighBeam and Questia access, so I hope to make some progress in improving this article. I've added an image from the Alabama Dept. of Public Safety in the 1960s id book to the Williams article. I got the image onto Commons, and I think that other 'ID Cards' from that publication should also be added there. Commons is very weak, I think, on US Civil Rights movement images, and is especially weak on images of leaders other than MLK. Perhaps you can take a look at the online source (given in the Commons description). I am a bit leery in pushing for more of these cards on Commons, not wanting to risk losing the one there now. And, of course, I would welcome any US Civil Rights movement sources you recommend. - Neonorange (talk) 03:47, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi, just got back to your page and I've enjoyed your edits on the Selma movie page. Good to meet you. Being near Atlanta you have a lot of research possibilities, the King Center among them, and access (with a little travel) to all of the people alive from the movement years in Alabama and Georgia. Are you going to attend Selma's 50th next year? More on that later. Hosea Williams gave Bevel the strategy credits, although he did some good strategy himself. The popular civil rights sources have major holes in them regarding some of the main people and events in the movement. So picking among them I'd suggest looking at their references, many are just copying earlier references in books which copied earlier references (and from there it's turtles all the way down). On Williams, I did two phone interviews with him, never met him unfortunately, and he was a fun person to talk to (he seemed to know how to enjoy his alcohol). I can't recall if he wrote a book or if a full-length book has been written about him. He's a good topic for research and for article improvement and expansion, good choice. I've never played with the Commons area of Wikipedia, and don't really know how it works, and my main experience with it is finding that categories listed there show up as red links when I tried to apply them to articles here. Lots to talk about regarding civil rights topics, and it's a very nice field to work and explore within. I'll check out the Williams page. I know Bevel had some go-arounds with him and King about Williams' SCOPE Project, and wanted the movement money not used in Selma or that which came in after Selma used in a different way. One of Bevel's and King's agreements centered around asking for and collecting money only when a specific movement was up, running, and occurring. edit: I just checked the Williams' page and was surprised SCOPE isn't mentioned - it was Williams' signature project and the cause of much discussion. And it looks like his papers are in Atlanta, and he has a daughter who's promoting his work. She'd be fun to hang out with. Randy Kryn 11:42 6 June 2014 (UTC)
p.s. Here's a source if you haven't looked at it, Civil Rights Movement Veterans, run by Bruce Hartford who I actually just met on his talk page here (user:Brucehartford) after I saw that the article here on his important organization was huffed when it had inadequate support. And so it goes. (heh heh). You can read our short discussion on his talk page. Thanks for aiming my mind in some of these directions. Randy Kryn 12:14 6 June 2014 (UTC)
There is a lot missing from the Hosea Williams article, and I've removed some material. I've been active editing Wikipedia for just about a year, spending 90% of my time here getting an understanding of the structure and process. To this point, I'm lucky if an hour results in two edits. I am aware of the primary resources available in Atlanta, but [WP:OR]]. I saw some of that primary material come into existence. And had some; but bit-rot happens (well, not bit-rot, but rather iron oxide flaking from tape: over years rather than decades for early videotape). Thanks for your suggestions.
By the way, I am a bit concerned the hierarchy 'code', 60s and 10s, in this article may be off-putting for readers.- Neonorange (talk) 03:45, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi. I didn't mean for you to actually use quotes from letters or private papers on his Wikipedia page, or from your personal experiences, but Williams' papers must include articles about him. Unless he wasn't a packrat. Not everyone is. So lots is lost or never collected in the first place. There were so many little newspapers in the 1960s which I don't think anyone has copies of anymore. On the Selma film topic, I'm not clear on what you mean by "hierarchy code, 60s and 10s". Lost me there, please explain if you have a few minutes. Thanks. And your description of your time on Wikipedia is interesting, and your grasp of the structure must be very solid by this time. For myself, I enjoy adding to lists and templates, and linking those to the principal pages involved via inclusion or See also additions. Sometimes I bump into a page which then takes me on a tangent I didn't expect, check out the List of Stone Age art I'm creating little-by-little over the last few days (found the list under a different name, it didn't have many entries, and was just sitting there with its door open and windows fallen out. So I renamed it and am playing with the concept of honoring the prehistoric artists as the main focus of the page, with their artwork presented as real art and not as artifacts. "Gotta give the cavemen respect, bro," could be posted above the entrance. Randy Kryn 3:37 8 June 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────As to my overly cryptic 'hierarchy code': you and I both tried to add a more nuanced view of what we are assuming will be the pivotal event in Selma; a film only part way through principle photography, after a long gestation. Who led which march and what section of which organization. And that's an ongoing conversation. Then my recent reading at the film infobox template and Erik's point to the Paramount press release, leading to my attempt to navigate the production credit minefield (all I knew before was the five producer limit for Academy best film nominations). And then I got into making the prior film portrayal section. I think this article just can't support the level of detail we'd perhaps like to see. And maybe ought to be allowed to go quietly, with more attention paid to the Wikipedia article 'Selma to Montgomery marches'. Leave further development of this article until the film speaks for itself. I just read a June 5th, 2014 Selma Times-Journal (note the descriptive line on the masthead); three articles - the location shoot, the Boynton former house, the Selma public pool. My grasp of Wikipedia structure and process? Mainly, what I've learned is patience. Drop me an email if you'd like to continue this conversation off-wiki; I know I would. And, if you should see some really weird phrases in this post, put it down to my iPad. - Neonorange (talk) 05:11, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

@Randy: I hadn't intended to edit at Selma for a while, but Captain Assassin! pinged me, and I gave it my best shot under time constraint, and came up with a fourth DYK line. And made edits I considered necessary (at this midpoint in the film production); I removed the 'leadership' level of detail I told you I thought excessive, but I left in Bevel and your cite. I want to work on the marches article now; please help me there. (I think I will go to Selma during the shoot this month, to get a few images. After reading the Selma Times-Journal, can Selma still hold the number of people that may be there on the fiftieth anniversary? The image in the paper of the public pool brought to mind my high school town; under a court order to desegregate the public pool, the city filled it in with bulldozers.) - Neonorange (talk) 23:13, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
4th hook is best I think, I suggested it for the DYK and improved the lead section of the film's article according to the DYK's 4th hook. And yes, go to the production set in Selma to get images. --Captain Assassin! «TCG» 00:55, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
Just saw this. I put a comment on the hook page. Have tweaked the wording in the lead, moving the SCLC organizers first and Lewis next. This was literally Bevel's creation, from almost start to finish, and his name should surely go ahead of the others and if I were writing it alone would surely mention that Bevel initiated the marches. I would like to email, where can I find your eddress? I've never emailed a Wikipedia editor before. Selma will be swamped next year, which will make it an interesting march reenactment (and actual march I assume). Randy Kryn 1:28 9 June 2014 (UTC)
I was being very literal, as in who stepped off in the literal line of the marches. I wrote just as I did just to avoid detailed discussion in this article. And I believe that there was an organizational seniority list: DCVL, SNCC, and SCLC - who got where first. Not necessary to cross every etc. in this film article. But, SNCC was there first and so forth and so on. For various reasons, reasons that I am sure Duvernay, Webb et. al. have heard over and over again; so not now, yet again, in this slim article. Could you take this into account, and tweak just a bit more? Poor Captain must think he's stepped into a dark room illuminated in brief flickers B^) - I'm now using my iPad again, watch for weird phrases. In the list, under tools, click on [Email this user]; an email window will open, use it as you would any other; Wikipedia will handle getting it to me (no attachments allowed).
How to email (ignore the brackets, I'm using them just to set off clickable links): if you to look in the column at the left of this page you will see [Tools] , which may or may not be expanded as a list. If necessary, click on [Tools]. Then click on [Email this user] and an email window will open; use the form as you would in sending any other email; Wikipedia will handle getting the email to me. It's just a way to protect anonymous accounts like mine (not that I care so much, but at this point don't want to contribute under my real name.) Also you can use it just, if for no other reason, to keep your email address from being harvested by spammers, commercial and otherwise. I await your email with interest. - Neonorange (talk) 02:41, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
You can now email me, or I'll send you one later in the day. As for the Selma movement, these quotes may go a long way in giving the history: "I'd say 98% of the plans and activities in Selma were Bevel's. The Selma Movement was Bevel's baby." - James Orange, and "We would have never gone to Selma, and there would not have been a Voting Rights Bill today if James Bevel had not conceived of the idea" "Jim was the originator of the idea of the march from Selma to Montgomery. Jim Bevel is the author of that." "Dr. King could not have done the things he did unless he had a James Bevel." - Ralph David Abernathy. Bevel was working with Nash and Orange in Alabama since September, 1963, away from SCLC's office but still holding the title of 'Director of Direct Action'. SNCC's team was run by Bernard Lafayette for years, and then others, and Lewis came in later. Amelia Boynton of DCVL kept inviting SCLC to officially join them in Selma, and King and the group finally agreed late in 1964 and put Bevel officially in charge of their actions there, and then Bevel finally came up with the movement escalation which would put the voting rights question both in front of the American public and the world: the Selma to Montgomery marches. I just tweaked the order of participants for accuracy. Your trip to the filming later this month should be quite interesting, and at a minimum a few good photos will really spruce up the film page. Randy Kryn 11:56 9 June 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Your email does not seem to be set up yet. I have no reason to disagree with you; my only goal was provide credit for those I knew were missing from the original film article led. As I said, I don't know anything about Bevel, never met him, and haven't thought seriously about the marches since the mid 80's; until this film article appeared. Looking back at the edit history for Selma, I see that the led in the version I first edited, MLKs was the only leader named, so I added John Lewis and Hosea Williams; in the order of John Lewis and Hosea Williams, being the front line of the Bloody Sunday march, and MLK as at the front of the Turnaround Tuesday march. And for the third march, lots of change-outs over several days. Just as simple as that. I have no agenda, but did want to side-step all agenda. (Not saying you do, but agenda exist.) Drop me a note, or I will when your email works. - Neonorange (talk) 17:09, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

email sent, seems I didn't check the final box in the sign-up process. I have my fingers crossed that you are Anne Hathaway. Randy Kryn 20:37 9 June 2014 (UTC)
I was right! You are Anne, may the gods be praised. Thanks for your thanks. Did you see Oprah herself is playing Annie Lee Cooper? I wonder if she knows that Cooper was the first person Bevel told right after he thought of the march (she was working as a night clerk at the Torch Motel, where Bevel came up with the plan as he himself was walking around and around outside). Cooper was the woman who beat up Sheriff Jim Clark, so Winfrey will give it her all (I hope). Randy Kryn 19:28 11 June 2014 (UTC)
Haven't heard back from you from the email. What may have happened is that my email name also includes my user name here, including the "Randy" part, and some email systems read it out as racy and put it in the spam folder. Check in there to see if my messages are mixed in with the other nonsense. Thanks. Randy Kryn 4:04 15 June 2014 (UTC)
Randy, the fault is not in the email transmissions, but in me. I have a junk mail diversion folder, and check before deletion, so I'll never miss goodmail. Just to check, I've sent two emails through Wikipedia to you, and received one:
  • to -> beginning with Your email account now seems 9JUN14
  • to -> beginning with I see by the time stamp 10JUN14
  • from -> beginning with Hi, and thanks for your work 11JUN14.
Not keeping score B^) just checking the process.
My apologize for letting my reply slide. Suddenly my Wikipedia presence heated up (more messages in the last week than in the previous year. I just saw you good edits on Selma to Montgomery marches, took a look, and made a minor tweak to avoid the Voting Rights Act redirect (the Wikipedia article is titled Voting Rights Act of 1965. The link you put in still works, but through a redirect. I'll reply to your email now. - Neonorange (talk) 04:41, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
P.S. I've learn much from working on this article - I'm so glad the Captain got it rolling. Without that, our conversation might not have gotten started. Aside from the learning more about the movement, I've been learning more Wikipedia syntax stuff. Take a look at what is the 'preferred' way to make a list! Who'd have thought? The 'nowrap' probably makes the infobox too wide, too bad there's not image; that would make judging the layout effect easier. - Neonorange

Andrew Maloney[edit]

Hi. I see from your recent conversation with User:Duke Maloney that you are working on a page on Andrew Maloney. Please keep me in the loop in your development of this article. If we are indeed talking about the former US Attorney, it is likely that the earlier article was deleted by an editor who did not do his research properly. It shouldn't be difficult to establish notability. RomanSpa (talk) 03:26, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Yes, it is indeed that Andrew Maloney, the one that gets 4000 hits in a search of the NYT archives, beginning with this "NEW YORK AT WORK; Facing Gotti, A Prosecutor Hard on Mob". And yes, I could use some help on the article, thanks for asking. And the problem goes way past proper research; I left a message for DGG, who replied. The 'problem' is best left to him, I think. - Neonorange (talk) 03:41, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
I was about to bring him into the conversation when I discovered he was already there! I'm beginning to suspect he has super-powers of some sort!
As for Andrew Maloney, perhaps the best approach would be if you and User:Duke Maloney could re-create what has been written so far as best you can, and I'll review it for bias, and perhaps add some non-Gotti stuff. RomanSpa (talk) 04:13, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Taking care of 'encyclopedic tone' is the first task. With that, for this article, 'bias' takes care of itself. (By "way past proper research" I was alluding to the improper 'speedy' and the lazy deletion.) Help with the language and readability is what I need. - Neonorange (talk) 23:41, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

MOS:FILM[edit]

See WP:FILMPLOT. In film articles, plot/synopsis sections are not required to have citations. :) Schmidt, Michael Q. 20:43, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks; seems I should have left off that last sentence. (pounding in my 'Keep', likely from my perception the nomination was a bit lazy, considering WP:RS wasn't that hard to find, and that IMDB status is in dispute, rather than forbidden) - Neonorange (talk) 21:14, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
Proper WP:BEFORE is highly recommended under WP:DEL, but sadly not a mandate. Lack of BEFORE is always a problem, and usually results in an AFD being used to force improvements. Too often some of the most well-meaning nominators do not show understanding of policies WP:DEL#REASON and WP:ATD. Faced with laziness, it becomes the burden of those wishing a "keep" to show that sources exist and that the topic is notable. When sources do exist, simply being unsourced is not a proper deletion rationale and IMDB is always suitable as a tool to expand searches for sources. Schmidt, Michael Q. 19:30, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the helpful information; I'm still working through it. And I think it applies to more than films. - Neonorange (talk) 06:12, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/So Happy Together (film)[edit]

Just to explain why it looks like I reverted your AfD !vote...

It looks like the edit accidentally moved some things around in such a way that affected display of the page. Seemed easiest to revert and manually re-add your comment. --— Rhododendrites talk |  22:32, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks; for the fix and the explanation. Wasn't my intention; wonder how I managed that. - Neonorange (talk) 00:07, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Annie Lee Cooper[edit]

Hello. By the time I got to the Woodstock article I was half-a-million strong. Would you like to pitch in a few or couple hundred edits on an 'Annie Lee Cooper' page. The good Captain and I talked of working on it, and I just threw up a few lines in my sandbox where Captain suggested we organize it from. Doesn't have to be a full detailed article to be put into main space, so we could just get it into some kind of shape. I bet hundreds of people tried to find an article on her when they read about Oprah Winfrey playing her, so if we do a good stub at first that should be fine. Thanks. Randy Kryn 16:06 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Have you read the earliest NYT article on Cooper? It's pretty good, and has a striking image (literally, J. Clark in the act.) Copyright issues on the image don't signify - the PDF of the article is so low rez subtitles would be required. One or two additional NYT articles are not of much use. And then there is a Talese profile of J. Clark that illuminates Talese more than J. Clark. If you don't have access, I can scratch out a paragraph or two with a quote and cites; you can make of it what you will. - Neonorange (talk) 16:31, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
P.S. The hotel in Selma is the St. James; right at the bridge. It isn't functioning as a hotel (lacking air conditioning, it'd be a hard sell.) Seems to have fallen on hard times, neighbor damage from Katrina is mentioned. But hey, it's haunted! Perhaps Selma production redo will make it available for the 50th; get your reservations early- oh, that's right, not taking reservations. - Neonorange (talk) 16:40, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
Your scratched out paragraphs most welcome. Aw, that was a really nice hotel. I remember meeting Claudette Colvin in its lobby and immediately thanking her and calling her the Mother of the Civil Rights Movement. I thought that that hotel would be the headquarters for a lot happening both at the film shoot and at the 50th, shows how little I know. There was a mummy of a dead someone up the steps from the restaurant, I wonder where that went to. Randy Kryn 17:24 16 June 2014 (UTC)
The St. James is being used for the production - that's why the window air conditioners. - Neonorange (talk) 23:35, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi. Air conditioners? Who needs no stinkin' air conditioners. Man was meant to be dripping sweat and pounds in Mother Nature's natural sauna. I did a stub-like creation for Annie Lee Cooper and, as you can see by the sky-blue of its link, have mainspaced it. Please, have at it, make it glow like the sun. I wonder how many people looked for a page with that name after Oprah was announced as playing her. I won't make the Selma shoot, although I tried. I better write you a note.

p.s. An editor left a release date of January 9, 2015, for the film. And a thought, if you attend next week, could you maybe consider grabbing a few good outside pics and maybe some inside photos of the National Voting Rights Museum? That would really help the page. Captain put an infobox on the Annie Lee Cooper page, and maybe some joker can put a picture of Oprah in it! Randy Kryn 19:48 20 June 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I do plan on being in Selma. I will get some additional images, including the voting rights museum. If you have some additional image suggestions, please drop me an email. By the way, there is an iconic image of J. Clark in the act of striking the blow. Fair Use may be possibility; the image is in the NYT article, but the quality in the PDF is too poor to be helpful. - Neonorange (talk) 02:56, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
email just sent. Someone I know has a picture of Cooper which may be usable, but it's from when she was very old. Lots of the civil rights folk have reached nice ages. Look t Joseph Lowery, and he just keeps getting better. Enjoy the trip, and I hope you have as much fun as is humanly possible. Randy Kryn 13:27 22 June 2014 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library: New Account Coordinators Needed[edit]

Hi Books & Bytes recipients: The Wikipedia Library has been expanding rapidly and we need some help! We currently have 10 signups for free account access open and several more in the works... In order to help with those signups, distribute access codes, and manage accounts we'll need 2-3 more Account Coordinators.

It takes about an hour to get up and running and then only takes a couple hours per week, flexible depending upon your schedule and routine. If you're interested in helping out, please drop a note in the next week at my talk page or shoot me an email at: jorlowitz@gmail.com. Thanks and cheers, Jake Ocaasi via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:41, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Fannie Lou Hamer article[edit]

Hello. You reverted out an edit I made, simply adding material to an already existent statement in the Fannie Lou Hamer article. The honorary induction into the sorority was already in the article before I touched it. --- Wikiklrsc (talk) 18:57, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Yes, and thank you for adding the 'Death' section and moving the honorary induction to the appropriate section. I edited the awards section, wikifying an award and the sorority. I also removed the fact about the sorority foundation date; that fact is extraneous to the article, and can now be found by clicking on the link. I believe the 'Honors and awards' section lacks high quality sources; it'd be great if you could help find better sources to cite for the awards. Also, I just looked a the 'Columbia College' wiki-link in the section, it is ambiguous, so that needs correction also. The 'Legacy' section needs a lot of work. The 'Death' section could also use a sentence or two about her burial site. Hope we can work together on this article. - Neonorange (talk) 20:18, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your kind reply. It looks better. Thanks. I'll do what I can on the article. Best. --- (Bob) Wikiklrsc (talk) 04:32, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the extremely quick work! The book you cited (from google books) looks interesting; I'll try to get access. - Neonorange (talk) 23:43, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
My pleasure. I found the book to be extremely interesting -- in her own words throughout. --- (Bob) Wikiklrsc (talk) 04:48, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
