I noticed an inconsistency (possibly an error) between the search subject pages for TURKESTAN and RUSSIAN SAGE. One being a country, the other a plant. The plant is said to have been named for the Russian governor of Turkestan, Petrovski, in the 1840s, but Turan didn't become part of the Russian Empire until the 1860s. Perhaps you might be able to shed light on this, or explain which came first the turkey or the egg. Much obliged. Professor Plum


Profhun, you should read up on the subject. Turkestan is not a country or a political entity (I don't think it ever has been such), but it IS a genuine ethnogeographic region, it is referenced in many scholarly books. You should read up on the subject. Here is a reading list for you (all available on amazon com):

  • The Arts and Crafts of Turkestan (Arts & Crafts) by Johannes Kalter.
  • The Desert Road to Turkestan (Kodansha Globe) by Owen Lattimore.
  • Turkestan down to the Mongol Invasion. by W. BARTHOLD.
  • Turkestan and the Fate of the Russian Empire by Daniel Brower.
  • Tiger of Turkestan by Nonny Hogrogian.
  • Turkestan Reunion (Kodansha Globe) by Eleanor Lattimore.
  • Turkestan Solo: A Journey Through Central Asia, by Ella Maillart.
  • Mission to Turkestan,: Being the memoirs of Count K.K. Pahlen, 1908-1909 by Konstantin Konstanovich Pahlen.
  • Turkestan: The Heart of Asia by Curtis.
  • Tribal Rugs from Afghanistan and Turkestan by Jack Frances.
  • The Heart of Asia: A History of Russian Turkestan and the Central Asian Khanates from the Earliest Times by Edward Den Ross.

Rock Springs massacre[edit]

Thank you so much for your compliment on the article. It really made my day when I saw it. I worked hard making this article what it is, it's nice to be recognized by someone with knowledge in the topic area. This event is rather marginalized in terms of importance in American history, as a lot of issues relating to Asian-Americans are, my goal was to present the topic truthfully, accurately, and, hopefully, introduce some people to the event and its implications. I can only hope that it impels people to look further into the topics hit on in the article because I hold them to be rather important. Thanks again for the kind words, they make the research and work that went into the article well-worth it. :-)--IvoShandor (talk) 04:46, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

American Folk Figure. He was a simple Creek Indian who lived near Henryetta, Oklahoma, and became the "Richest Indian" when oil was discovered on his land allotment in 1912.

For years before and after his death he was the center of legal battles concerning his money and made headlines across the country. In 1923 to get away from Oklahoma officals his wife moved him to a mansion in Los Angeles where he died in 1934.

Talk:Depictions of Muhammad[edit]

I noticed your comments were removed from the Muhammad talk page. Thanks for the compliments, though. I think Wikipedia's new motto should read: "Salus in Silentium" or something like that. We edit because because we can do so without repercussions. It's like how tenure used to be. Rklawton (talk) 23:47, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

November 2011[edit]

Hello, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed that you recently added commentary to an article, Marker pen. While Wikipedia welcomes editors' opinions on an article and how it could be changed, these comments are more appropriate for the article's accompanying talk page. If you post your comments there, other editors working on the same article will notice and respond to them, and your comments will not disrupt the flow of the article. However, keep in mind that even on the talk page of an article, you should limit your discussion to improving the article. Article talk pages are not the place to discuss opinions of the subject of articles, nor are such pages a forum. Thank you. Although it wasn't truly dialogue, please only sign contributions in discussion namespaces, thank you. ContinueWithCaution (talk) 15:42, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Operation Trojan Horse[edit]

Thanks for the "heads-up". If you hear any leading American conservatives talk or write about the Operation Trojan Horse, feel free to add it to the article in a relevant section. Thank you '''tAD''' (talk) 18:20, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
