PhotoEdit

That photo is great, the randomness of the pink pony toy, but it just somehow works well. -- Zanimum 19:06, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

  • Thanks - I thought it worked too :-) --David Shankbone 21:24, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

On self-destruction and survivalEdit

David, there is a small glitch in your last question of this section, where you talk about the suicide. "thirteen; s a kid". I wasn't sure exactly what it was supposed to be, so I thought you should have a look at it. Jcart1534 00:32, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

On ReligionEdit

I recommend removing the last line: DS: Yeah, yeah. The Southern Baptist convention is probably the most conservative out there.

It adds nothing to the article, potentially insults Southern Baptists, and it does not have any response from the subject of the article, so it's just a standalone comment made by David Shankbone. The problem, as I see it, is that putting it in the mouth of an interviewer adds a connotation of neutrality, and therefore makes it less likely to be examined closely by someone who is not immediately offended or offput.24.205.50.170 01:49, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

TypoEdit

It says 'the the'; this should be only one 'the'. Van der Hoorn (talk) 17:27, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Actually, it is still there. But I'm not sure whether it should be only one 'the', or that [sic] should be added. Van der Hoorn (talk) 13:46, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
  Done — oops. Done now. I got caught up doing something else in the article and forgot to make the change;). Gopher65talk 02:38, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Category improvementEdit

"Category:Audio Wikinews News Briefs" is not appropriate here, so it should be removed. Van der Hoorn (talk) 23:42, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

  Done --Skenmy talk 20:46, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
