Comments[edit]

Moments ago I was asked to come take a look at this article. I was immediately impressed with the extensive development of the article. However, for an article with 6505 characters of prose, the WP:LEAD should be more than one sentence. I would expect two or three well developed paragraphs. Review each section of the article and make sure it is summarized in the LEAD.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 16:48, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

I think that the numerous one-line sentences should be merged or expanded. There are stylistic issues in some of the sentences, but not much that is clearly wrong.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 18:29, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
