Boise homosexuality scandal[edit]

This peer review discussion has been closed.
I've listed this article for peer review because I think it's pretty close to GA status, although I am a bit concerned that it relies pretty heavily on a single source. It's a brand-new article that no one else has looked at so I want another set of eyes on it before making the GA nomination.

Comments from Casliber[edit]

(OMG I have relatives in Boise!) hehehe, fascinating topic. I don't have much time but will jot a few style notes. :) Casliber (talk · contribs) 04:54, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

...leading them to quietly halt the investigation - "halt" I always think of as sudden and abrupt (and sorta noisy). I was wondering whether "wind down" or "desist" or something was better. Casliber (talk · contribs) 04:54, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
The section Investigation and first arrests starts rather abruptly. I think some background or context-setting might be good. i.e. A few sentences which might mention that Boise was a fairly conservative part of America (I guess ???), and current laws on homosexuality at the time (briefly and succinctly)

More later, have you pinged Moni3? if not I will do so. She will be helpful I am sure. Casliber (talk · contribs) 04:58, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
