Yeah, I'm missing the punchline.

Surely, someone forgot to add the punchline.

"The user who visits Wikipedia to learn about some subject, to confirm some matter of fact, is rather in the position of a visitor to a public restroom. It may be obviously dirty, so that he knows to exercise great care, or it may seem fairly clean, so that he may be lulled into a false sense of security. What he certainly does not know is who has used the facilities before him."

-Robert McHenry, Former Editor in Chief of the Encyclopædia Britannica.

I see. So when I look up NARN on wikipedia and I read this:

The show airs in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul on AM1280 The Patriot.

I now know that I should take that info with a grain of salt.

Thank you for performing this critical public service. I'm sure it cut into to your valuable valuable stalking time.

Why is the NARN website down?... is the NARN out of money?

The NARN Wiki page should say something about that.

Why isn't someone more independent than Mitch Berg aka the MOB Parrot posting the original article about Captain Ed's blog? Captain Ed and Mitch are the co-hosts of the same NARN segment every Saturday. That would like having me post a bio of Ken Avidor - or Avidor Studios on Wikipedia.

I believe Wikipedia has guidelines on this sort of thing.
