The tragedy is not that things are broken. The tragedy is that things are not mended again. - Alan Paton
Bach is the beginning and end of all music - Max Reger
It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It's us. Only us - Rorschach
Amazingly enough, there are other sites out there which can and should be used instead of Wiki:
Encyclopedia - Britannica Online Encyclopedia

“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
Reliability of Wikipedia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://www.nature.com/nature/journal...l/438900a.htmlJimmy Wales' Wikipedia comes close to Britannica in terms of the accuracy of its science entries, a Nature investigation finds.
UPDATE: see details of how the data were collected for this article in the supplementary information.
UPDATE 2 (28 March 2006). The results reported in this news story and their interpretation have been disputed by Encyclopaedia Britannica. Nature responded to these objections .
One of the extraordinary stories of the Internet age is that of Wikipedia, a free online encyclopaedia that anyone can edit. This radical and rapidly growing publication, which includes close to 4 million entries, is now a much-used resource.
Nonetheless, I agree with you. I view Wiki as a great platform to use, but not necessarily an authority of knowledge.

The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.
Time to bust out Encarta '95.
Seriously though, Google has replaced their doodle with a blackout and Reddit is also blacked out for the day. If we could just get Facebook on board Congress would have to shut down their phone lines.
"There is an excellent correlation between giving society what it wants and making money, and almost no correlation between the desire to make money and how much money one makes." ~Dalio
