This article appears to be about a child. Which is a shame, from an encyclopedia point of view, as Jack Abbott is also the killer Norman Mailer freed who then killed again.Phuego 14:00, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

I have reverted it. Uucp 14:04, 12 July 2007 (UTC)


The Wiki page and discussion for Susan Sarandon indicate there's debate as to her actual support for Abbott, noting that while she attended his trial, she never came out and said anything definitive about her attitude toward him. There's also no evidence that the name of her son is more than coincidence, according to her page. Someone have an attribution for the assertions on this page?

"Influences" list seems...dubious[edit]

I think it would be appropriate to remove all of the "influences" listed, as they're pretty clearly somebody's idea of a joke. I read Abbott's book and I sure don't recall any references to W.V.O. Quine (to pick just the most ridiculous of the purported influences).

In the absence of any citations for these, would it be OK to just remove them? (talk) 10:48, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
