Barnstar[edit]

Well I know how tempting it can be to just walk away from an argument, especially one against a stubborn mule -- and sometimes walking away is the right thing to do, but I think the MoS over-reactions in this case merited your continued arguing and hopefully common sense will prevail in the end. So thanks, "on behalf of the project", for not taking the easy way out. Sherurcij (speaker for the dead) 00:19, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

GA review for Chicken tax[edit]

Hi, I placed the article on hold with a major complaint about US-centrism and recentism. I am hoping you will be able to address the issue -- the article is truly fascinating! Renata (talk) 02:57, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

  • I added a note on sources following Renata's review (perhaps too much hair-plucking for a GA). East of Borschov 09:53, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi, it's been over a week and there were no edits or replies to GA review. Please respond or I will have to fail the article. Renata (talk) 00:26, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Jimmy John's[edit]

VERY nicely done. I have no argument with that inclusion. It's short, to the point, and proves it's notability. The sponsorships were a good deletion, as well.

Thank you. Now let's see if it sticks. Regards, --Manway 14:22, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanx[edit]

Hey, thanx for the ‘I Am’ and ‘Art Of Racing In The Rain’ pages, it’s good to see them there.

I also see from his 'talk' page with the Honda Super Cub you've had the same probs with the user Dennis Bratland (talk) that other people have had with him only thinking that own his edits are any good and no-one else's are - talk about ownership issues.

and i notice he's doing it again here – BMW R1100GS (BMW R1100GS) - so maybe for the good of Wikipedia we should contribute to this noticeboard discussion. It seems to me he's in the wrong yet again! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.254.173.13 (talk) 10:31, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Danke[edit]

Morris Levy[edit]

Do you have a source for the edit where you added Cynthia Brooks as a wife of Morris Levy? Or that he divorced her in 1961? 842U (talk) 12:21, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

There are a couple of citations in the article and there are dozens digitally searchable references to Cynthia Brooks (born approximately 1933) marrying and divorcing Morris Levy. But the sources are syndicated columnists, not primary documents, such as marriage license or divorce court indices. One article pre-announced their impending marriage to take place on 15 September 1957 aboard Morris' yacht, off of Long Island;1 another article stated that Brooks divorced William Dougherty (club owner of Chicago) to marry Levy;4 another article announced the filing for divorce in April 1959; yet another announced them dating again in 1960.2 There's also a 1957 article saying that Levy denied the rumor of his impending marriage to Brooks.3
Before marrying Levy, Brooks had married and divorced Rudi Maugeri (né Rudolph V Maugeri; born 1931) (vocalist with The Crew-Cuts). They had met in Vegas and married in Chicago. Brooks worked as a chorus girl at the El Rancho Vegas. She also was under contract at 20th Century Fox, appearing in Follow the Sun (1951) and Westward Ho, The Women (1952).
Published gossip columns state that Brooks, in 1958 and 1959, dated Joe E. Lewis and Lance Reventlow.
Brooks appeared in several pinup mags, including Show (January 1956) and Bold (August 1956; back cover); and a few mainstream mags, particularly Life (Every Man's Miss Brooks, March 1957, pg. 51 — photographer: Peter Stackpole).
I have not done much work on Levy. Give me some time to do some digging. — Eurodog (talk) 23:21, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

It was the Wikipedia bots that suggested I find links for "narrow boat to carcassonne" - it was NOT at my initiative. I looked at Carcassonne and it seemed an obvious link.
