So in my previous post, I mentioned that there was a discrepancy between Wikipedia and an article about the writer formerly known as Abby. I wanted to take a minute and talk about how Wikipedia is now the voice of news ... or rather, the voice of the people, reporting the news.
When I was in school, we weren't able to use online sources, unless you could properly cite an accredited source, and corroborate the story with 2 or 3 other sources. Most of the time, we'd stop at another "proper" source and site that instead. These days, kids are siting Wikipedia as news. I bet a lot of kids have never seen an Encyclopedia Britannica, let alone lugged one around!
And when was the last time you saw an atlas? Remember how he's holding up the world? He'd be so disappointed that no one even remembers him!
In other news (and because I thought it would be inappropriate in the last post), HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
