John Avlon marketing his book.[edit]


So I noticed a sentence in the "radical center" wiki with no citation.

The definitive history of "Centrism" in America, and probably the best-selling radical centrist book to date[citation needed], is John Avlon's Independent Nation (2004, pbk. 2005).

I was unaware that sales figures were kept for "radical centrist" publications, so I did some searching for a top 10 list of radical centrists books by various years (2009, 2008, 2007 etc..). Unfortunately, I was unable to find such a list.

So, I removed the sentence. Then I went to John Avlon's wiki to remove the following sentence, which cites as its source the sentence in the "radical center" wiki that has no citation!

Independent Nation has been called, "the definitive history of 'Centrism' in America, and probably the best-selling radical centrist book to date."

Unfortunately, I'm a newbie so I can't change the page. I imagine there were some "angry" edits made in the past few months which is why the page is protected. Nevertheless, the above sentence strikes me as pure unsupported marketing which shouldn't have a place on a factual bio page.

Some insights on Abigail Taylor's death[edit]

Hi there, I noticed you nominated the Death of Abigail Taylor for deletion. Now I know the article is very confusing and conflicting but I remember hearing a lot about this event so I did some extensive research to try to clarify the confusion. Given the new details I hope you can reconsider your view on this article. Thanks, JayJayWhat did I do? 20:51, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

I don't find it to be either of those things. I do however disagree that it should remain as a separate article. I've commented at the deletion discussion. Kevin (talk) 05:48, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for taking care of the correct sourcing for BLPs, with care and attention, patience and diligence, and for treating editors as living persons, following the spirit of policy rather than letter, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!
