Frederick Reines is part of the Scouting WikiProject, an effort to build a comprehensive and detailed guide to Scouting and Guiding on the Wikipedia. This includes but is not limited to boy and girl organizations, WAGGGS and WOSM organizations as well as those not so affiliated, country and region-specific topics, and anything else related to Scouting. If you would like to participate, you can edit the article attached to this page, or visit the project page, where you can join the project and/or contribute to the discussion.
This article is poorly written and needs to be improved, though I'm not particularly eager to tackle the job at the moment. I am, however, removing the following text from the "Early Life" section: "Three other Eagle Scouts, from different troops, became Nobel laureates: Robert Coleman Richardson in physics, and Peter Agre and Dudley R. Herschbach for chemistry." Had these three scientists been in the same troop as Reines the coincidence would merit inclusion in the article. However, because they were in different troops, the sentence is about Eagle Scouts and not about Frederick Reines. It therefore does not belong in this article -- unless we also want to list all the Nobel laureates from New Jersey, NYU, Case Western, UC-Irvine, etc. Those lists don't belong in this article and neither does the Eagle Scout list. The same information is available at List of notable Eagle Scouts.
I agree with you about eliminating that sentence. In fact, I just eliminated it. Cardamon 00:17, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
Removed. I cannot find evidence that the bridge (which is still under construction as the whole project is running years behind) has been or will be named after him. Hawkeye7 (talk) 03:53, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
Done. Two block quotes inflate the rating. Hawkeye7 (talk) 03:53, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

The article passed the GA review to gain a Good Article Status. The article is finely cited with a good coverage and meet all other GA criteria. Ṫ Ḧthe joy of the LORDmy strength 14:59, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
^This requirement is significantly weaker than the "comprehensiveness" required of featured articles; it allows shorter articles, articles that do not cover every major fact or detail, and overviews of large topics.
^Vandalism reversions, proposals to split or merge content, good faith improvements to the page (such as copy editing), and changes based on reviewers' suggestions do not apply. Nominations for articles that are unstable because of unconstructive editing should be placed on hold.
^Other media, such as video and sound clips, are also covered by this criterion.
^The presence of images is not, in itself, a requirement. However, if images (or other media) with acceptable copyright status are appropriate and readily available, then some such images should be provided.
