Mixture of 1st and 3rd person[edit]

Why is the article a (wild) mixture of 1st and 3rd person all over the place? Not only is this highly unusual for Wikipedia articles, but it's also confusing for readers. Update: This has been fixed the day after I reported this. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stefanhinz (talkcontribs) 20:24, 14 June 2016 (UTC) --Stefanhinz (talk) 15:46, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Park[edit]

A park in Tacoma, Washington may be named after Herbert: http://www.thenewstribune.com/2013/06/19/2645714/frank-herbert-makes-sense-for.html --Gwern (contribs) 16:27 24 June 2013 (GMT)

Unwillingly/unwittingly[edit]

The reference to Nixon 'unwillingly' teaching people to distrust government as a result of Watergate is incorrect English. 'Unwillingly' would mean he knew he was doing it, but was forced to do it against his will (did it under duress) - which certainly isn't true. The right word here is 'unwittingly' - he did it, but had no idea he was doing it (another possible term for this is 'inadvertently').213.127.210.95 (talk) 16:47, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Good catch. I've fixed it. Cheers. —Waldhorn (talk) 05:32, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
