Um[edit]

Um. This headline seems biased to the uninformed reader in that it gives the impression the arrests were the result of a riot or violent activity. I think more information needs to be on this article. 198.254.16.200 23:51, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

It's been up for a while published and it'd be best not to change it at this point. The article makes the intention of the protest pretty clear though. Cirt - (talk) 02:23, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

I believe this would improve the lead, but it's locked:

The death of four soldiers Sunday from a roadside improvised explosive device has raised the number of American combat deaths in Iraq to 4,000. The milestone was reached just days after the fifth anniversary of the start of the war. judehaz -- (talk)

I changed it to your version, but I removed the word combat, since that was false, both in the original and your version. However, I don't see a whole lot of difference between the two. --SVTCobra 02:07, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Obama vs. Italy[edit]

Sony recall lead article verb agreement[edit]

Company names are generally considered singular nouns in English usage; thus, proper verb agreement requires "Sony has" instead of "Sony have" in the lead sentence. - John Darrow (talk) 03:19, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Done. Cirt (talk) 06:21, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Spelling[edit]

spelling error:"All 2,500 runners in the Lake District's Original Mountain Marathon, a fell running event, were accounted for this afternoon. As previously reported, 1,700 runners had been missing."

It should be fall. Palmtree3000 (talk) 02:14, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

no, fell is the correct term here, used to describe a mountain/hill. see Definition 5 --MarkTalk to me 02:19, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Glenn Beck to hold controversial 'Restoring Honor' rally at Lincoln Memorial - event has been and gone, but you wouldn't know that from our main page...[edit]

Can someone please put another story up here to replace this one? The event was due to happen on Saturday; it's now 19:30 UTC Sunday and the front page is still referring to a past story in the future tense. Bencherlite (talk) 19:32, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
