Hi, and welcome to the Wikipedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. I noticed your edits on the Six-Day War, and, even if I do not agree with some of your edits, I warmly welcome your contributions as a much-needed ballance to editors with pro-Arab bias.

List of publications in chemistry[edit]

Thank you for your new entry of the Berry, Rice and Ross, Physical Chemistry book. We agreed on guidelines for this page some time ago. To justify all new entries and thus preserve something of a neutral point of view, all entries are put up for debate on the talk page to decide whether to keep them or delete them. I coordinate this process. There were two entries today. The debate on both of them will close on April 1st. Feel free to add to the debate. I thought your justification under the "description" and "importance" section to be well written. You will see that I indicated a "weak keep", as I am concerned that all PChem texts, that are somebody's favorite, will be added. However, I added the Atkins text so perhaps I should have not commented. A weak keep is better than that. --Bduke 22:07, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for helping me with my vote[edit]

Chris Medlock[edit]

Heh, I don't know your political views, but something in you saying "he is just another unemployed citizen" strikes me as pretty funny. Maybe it's just from doing polisci in college. At any rate, even though he's now out of office, he did hold office previously, correct? I would consider that sufficient notability for mention, particularly if there's a scandal involved, which sounds like the case. But, then, I recognize that others may not agree with me, and I'll agree that it barely makes the cut (at least in my book). Do you have firsthand knowledge of who he is, or was it one of the things that you just kind of stumble across? Just wondering if somebody from the Tulsa area would be able to put it in better perspective.
On a totally unrelated note, I noticed on your user page that you're a Longhorn. I may be moving to Austin in about a month or so for a new job; did my undergrad in San Antonio. Always good to run into people from the same area. Tijuana Brass 03:28, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
Also, you have the most welcomes on your talk page that I've ever seen. Tijuana Brass 03:32, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Actually the subject Chris Medlock is no longer a city councilman in Tulsa. His term is over and he is just another unemployed citizen, and that is quite literally true. (NB prior announcement in Talk section on Medlock) Perhaps you would reconsider my proposed deletion. Best... Tex 01:46, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Although a Longhorn, I'm living in Tulsa now. I was looking at the list of Oklahoma pols when I ran across Medlock. Much to my surprise as none of our other councilors are in Wikipedia, and no other articles link to Medlock. Some of our mayors are there, but that seems reasonable to me. Medlock's term on the Council has been marked mainly by obstructionism. When elected he was employed by TV Guide, where a friend of mine knew him. Since then they have had massive reductions, and both Medlock and my friend lost their jobs.
When I was in Austin it was a sleepy little government/university town. Now it's a big city with traffic problems and high-tech industry. However you can get some terrific Mexican food there. Try Fonda San Miguel on Medical Parkway. And the barbecue is the best on the planet. The best places are in little towns around Austin like Dripping Springs, Lockhart, Driftwood, etc. There used to be a great place in Dripping Springs called the Salt Lick. Also the County Line in Austin is good and has a great view of the lake. A bit pricey, though.
Yeah, I need to consolidate those welcomes. And I still think Medlock's article needs to go. Even though I actually added most of the interesting stuff about him! Perhaps we should check and see whether similarly-sized towns have their city councilors in. I doubt it! Tex 13:32, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the recommendations. Actually gone by the County Line a time or two, and you're right, the barbeque is as good as it comes.
Concerning more mundane details... it sounds like you more than did your homework. As much as I enjoy a scandal, I'd defer to the judgment of a local Wikipedian on it. I was considering an RfC as an alternative, but the article is so small, it doesn't really seem like it needs to come to that. In any case, I'll second your prod, if you'd like to put it back up. Thanks for explaining it for me. Tijuana Brass 16:09, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

I saw your recent edit to The Goon Show. Be aware that Tentu also created The Goon Show format. I have converted it to a redirect. -- RHaworth 03:02, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

William Inge's semicolon[edit]

I've just noticed that the message I left you months ago was on your user page instead of your talk page; sorry about that.

Anyway, I just thought I'd say I'm wondering whether 66.108.4.183 is toying with us at William Inge's talk page. Maybe someone thinks it's a good joke.

List of Atheists: Claude Shannon[edit]

Hello Stedder. I noticed you added Claude Shannon with a citation from a book. Since you have access to the book, could you include the quote from it in which Shannon is identified as an atheist? Thanks. Nick Graves 01:08, 1 January 2007 (UTC)
