Writing at the Daily Dot , EJ Dickson confesses to perpetrating a fraud : planting a false entry in Wikipedia about the Amelia Bedelia children's books saying that the character is based on a maid in Cameroon. She was, she concedes, stoned at the time and now is horrified to discover that her little lark has become so widespread that it is believed by the nephew of the late author of the Amelia Bedelia books.  She consults a Wikipedia editor, who explains that "subtle vandalism" is unlikely to be detected because it doesn't look outrageous and there is no "systematic review system" on Wikipedia.  Here is the salient passage: " Ultimately, what I learned from my inadvertent Wikipedia hoax was not that Wikipedia itself isn't reliable, but that so many people believe it is. My lie - because that's what it was, really - was repeated by dozens of sources, from bloggers to academics to journalists.

Geopolitical analysts are especially fond of quoting Edmund Burke and George Santayana on the folly of ignoring the lessons of history and the dangers of repeating the original decisions. But what's even more imprudent, and potentially fatal, is to learn the wrong lessons from history — and by avoiding the previous mistakes, plow ahead without understanding the causes of their failure. President Barack Obama is now in danger of steering a perilous course in confronting the threat of Islamic State in the Middle East (also known as ISIS or ISIL)

New fall clothes need the kick of a boot to put them in their stylish place. Shoes make the fashionable woman, as those who have struggled through a difficult spring and summer shoe season have discovered. A heavier step is required now, and even women who managed to resist summer platforms will see the necessity of adding some weight to their shoe wardrobe. Light-hearted little flats and fragile heels which looked perfectly fine under last year's models lack the strength to hold up changing silhouettes.

Think extra points are more or less automatic in today's NFL? They may actually become just that. In an interview with NFL Network on Monday, commissioner Roger Goodell said the NFL is considering a rule change to eliminate the extra-point attempt after touchdowns. This comes after a regular season in which NFL kickers missed just five of their 1,261 PAT attempts, and four of the five misses were blocked. One proposal that league owners are mulling over would give a team seven points after a touchdown.

The show starts with a very dramatic entry set to Avicii's "Wake Me Up. " C'mon, you guys, never forget you're a cheesy dancing show. This feels like a results show from past seasons, particularly when we start with a live performance from Kellie Pickler. After that, the stars enter to a remix (or maybe a live version by the house band) of Martin Solveig's "Hello.

"Now how in hell can you sign that for an autograph and make it look good?" he wondered aloud. Genuine. Refreshing. Uninhibited. Certainly a storied figure in a game that once had a naivete to it that offered all of us hope that maybe we'd never have to grow up.Poffenberger had a reputation for staying out late, disappearing for days and drinking more than enough beer to float a convoy.
