This article is under construction, but was posted without a tag to that effect. I have added the "under construction tag" in the hope that the individual posting this entry might have the opportunity to finish their effort before the piece gets targeted for speedy deletion.Historytrain (talk) 01:46, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
I believe that the information under header "Early Life" lacks references which poses the idea of the paragraph being a personal opinion. If no reference is found then I suggest removing sentences that cannot be quoted directly that way it will not detract from the veracity of the article.
"As the only child of Jewish intellectuals (both schoolteachers), Mark D. Naison had an easy childhood. Although he was happy as a child, Naison felt different from the other kids because he was ostracized from his peers because his parents put such an importance on intelligence. Naison rebelled and turned to sports as an outlet and to help him fit in better with the neighbor kids."
- Weather Underground reference should be removed. He said in an interview, when the Weathermen moved in the direction of underground tactics and of 'the propaganda of the deed' and acts of political violence, that's when I left. I left before that." http://www.albany.edu/jmmh/vol4/naison/naison.html — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gogue2 (talk • contribs) 18:22, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
It would be more consistent with encyclopedic tone to modify the in-text references to the subject of this biography such that he is referred to as "Mark Naison" or "Naison" (rather than as "Mark").--Historytrain (talk) 01:15, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
