Englewood, Florida Edits
I don't know if this is where I should put this, but I can vouch for this wikipedia update. I live in the neighborhood of "Jack Wayne" (I live on Beardsley St in Englewood and I have definitely felt intimidated when dealing when him. If you would like me to document any of this I can. I only noticed this when I searched "Englewood,FL" tonight and noticed this was reversed in the history search.
- I don't know who it is that left the above comment, but I greatly appreciate you commenting to find out why I made the change I did. While I greatly appreciate your attempts to improve the quality of wikipedia, it's important to recognize that wikipedia is used by people around the world to receive quality, accurate, reputable, and articulate information. While I can't confirm or deny the existance of the "Jack Wayne" you brought up in your edits, it's clear from the information that you added that it doesn't meet the guidline of Wikipedia:Notability. Have a look at that link to see the types of things that should be included in articles. Again, I certainly appreciate your attempts to improve the article, but make sure that the information added would be the kind of things that people would be interested in reading if they opened a printed encyclopedia article on Englewood.

a belated 'you're welcome'
A very belated thanks for your thanks way back in July. I was pulled away from web work by lots of changes at work -- including the sudden death of Doug Lee -- but now I'm again able to refocus on the web. Many, many thanks for your help on the SU site. It would not exist without you. I've had a student intern start bringing site content up to date in accordance with Wikipedia's best practices for universities, and I've started plugging in new info and references on the page. Not finished yet. Going to have student gov review their text, and student life look over theirs, and ditto for res life and athletics. Your suggestions and edits welcome!

battle of yarmouk
Walikumsalam, thanks for sharing your views, i wanna clear some misconceptions here, first of all, tabari has not been used as a primary source for the battle in the article (look again !). Its mentioned in the primary sources section just as a reference of the early islamic history (for those readers who wanna read more on islamic history). There is hardly any reference to tabari in the article its self, and this is not because tabari is unreliable but its becoz in tabari's work hardly one page is dedicated to battle of yarmouk which is almost with out details, tabari was a persian historian and his work reflects his geographical origin. His work contain the most detailed accounts of the conquest and political and military administration of persian territories, he worked on the detailed history of his country, and relied only on brief accounts of the conquest of west. So if you wanna find out some thing about the conquest on roman front, you will definitely not select tabari for it.

- ibn ishaq is for further reading for those who are interested in early islamic history, its kinda tradition to give references for further reading.
Any ways, nice to know that the author of that book is your phd supervisor, then you can have access to those early byzantine and armenian sources from which he quoted the stuff.
- I cant understand why you think tabari is unreliable, the only historians we have got is tabari, baladhuri and waqidi, who have narrated the early islamic history. if you discard them, it means you erase islamic history, all that wht remains are those pathetic patches of byzantine and armenain historians. I would go to the approach that most of the scholars of islamic history (both eastern and western) exercise, i.e use them with cautions, use your own common sense, and compare them with relative events. I like Akram because he did a marvelous research work on not only the historical sources but also on the geographical locations of the campaigns by personally visiting them. He have in several places disagreed with one historian and supported the other in the light of what i call sense of historical events. Nicolle did the same, he have elaborated the whole campaign in the light of his knowledge of the byzatine warfare, and it turns out from his research that most of the events and dates mentioned by the early islamic historians (who are said to have written that all 250 years after the events) were remarkably accurate in many cases.
