He probably started writing before you hit "post."

Anyway it sounds good to me. I also dislike the "downtrodden people" line...anyway, it's collaborative, so if you think something is better, just change it, and if someone else doesn't like it, they can change it. As long as it's not just adding and deleting hyphens, any addition is a good addition--maybe it won't be right at first, but someone will fix it later to something they might not have added themselves if left to their own devices.

And then I'll change it when your all still in bed. :)
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Brandon, someone added a birth year of 1978 to your article. That's, um, not right, is it? And is your age on your website's About page still correct?

nah, that can't be right. '78 is when I was born, and I'm pretty sure EUOL is, what, 3 years older than me? Well, anyway, I'm sure he'll straighten Wikipedia out whenever he sees this.

EUOL's Birthday is '76, I went ahead and changed it.  Also he's got his Masters now so someone should change that part.

Oh, he finally turned in his thesis? But he's still teaching...is he going beyond Masters now?

I don't think he has any plans for a doctorate any time soon.  He's teaching because BYU hired him.

Arrrrr... Right, yeah. Somehow I momentarily forgot that not all teachers who aren't graduate students have doctorates, even though Linda Hunter Adams is a prime example...

Does BYU even have a doctoral program in English?

Uh, Sprig?  '75.  It's confusing because I've got a December birthday.  I should update my website.  I mention how old I am, but not my birthday, so it gets out of date every year....

Isn't EUOL's birth year 1975? I was born in 1976 and EUOL is almost exaclty one year older than me.

Since his birthday is in December it would be very close to '76.
