"About 4 percent to 20 percent" Where did this stat come from? That's an awful big gap there. I tried searching the sources but did not see it. The sacbee link is down at the moment so I can not check there. Tardigrade 07:09, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)


I don't know what the rules are on Wikinews, but this article seems awfully NPOV... starting with the headline which cannot be changed... : /

It doesn't seem that almost any effort has been made.

I haven't read the article, but you can move the article if you register for a login. I'm not sure why that is a restricted action, presumably based on experiences at Wikipedia.
You could flag the POV using {{npov}} or try to improve it yourself by editing the article.
Thanks either way for your feedback. - Simeon 16:39, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I have revised the article somewhat, extended it and moved it, yet trying not to damage any of the original assertions. It seems more two-sided to me now (although in fairness it was not completely one-sided when I first started).

Also, the "about 4 to 20 percent" seems inaccurate, and I don't see it anywhere in the sources, so I have revised it based on figures given in the article itself: 30,000 to 210,000 out of 1,599,986.

The sacbee link appears to have been permanently moved; I can't find it. DouglasGreen 17:13, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Replace image[edit]

{{editprotected}} Current image is a red link, maybe we should use File:George-W-Bush.jpeg instead. Cocoaguytalkcontribs 06:19, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Done. We're basically replacing one file photo with another almost identical one, so i don't think this violates WN:ARCHIVE conventions. Tempodivalse [talk] 15:16, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
