Gotta Watch That Wikipedia

My buddy Phil was curious about Congressman Bobby Rush having read about him in the coverage of Gov. Blagos indictment. So off to Wikipedia he goes and what he found was this:

Allow me to zoom in on the last sentence of the first paragraph.

Whether or not he is an asshole or a racist, I couldn't say, but clearly someone had some fun at Bobby and Wikipedia's expense.

Needless to say, when Phil went back later, it was gone. Even if it wasn't true, you have to have a certain affinity for the clarity of the statement. If only all reference materials were that pithy and direct.

Oh my goodness, that is hilarious! One must remember when reading Wikepedia that any of us could edit it if we wanted to.

Wikipedia is a worthless pile of garbage BECAUSE anyone can alter anything. I think anyone who has donated money to wikipedia is an absolute fool because the information is so corruptable and unreliable.
