Do I detect just a hint of POV in this? (Anon.)
- My jaw was dropping from the career title in the first word. Is the "image" just the barest bit inflated? Not all that informative as illustrations go... A bit cheeky. --Wetman 13:35, 26 December 2005 (UTC)
The line 'The famous Kemble family are direct descendants of John Kemble,' is curious since he's reported as a priest who never married or had children.
