Removed sentence[edit]

Removed the following sentence: "Dubner's book, Freakonomics, was required reading for all freshmen entering Appalachian State University for the fall of 2006." M. Frederick 15:08, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Infobox image[edit]

User:Sdubnerassistant, a user apparently claiming to be Dubner's assistant, says that a CC-licenced image is pending for the infobox, which is good news. But which is the better image to use in the mean time - a photo of a tiny and almost unrecognisable guy with a laptop in the middle-distance or a blurry and not particularly flattering close-up photo? (I actually tried cropping the former on Commons in 2013 but User:Bourreelam seems to have reverted it to the middle-distance image.) --McGeddon (talk) 23:14, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Best thing for now is maybe to go back to the cropped version of the middle-distance image, so I've recropped it on commons. --McGeddon (talk) 16:12, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
