Take 'er down, Wikipedia


I was surprised to see that I had a page on Wikipedia and for the record, I had nothing to do with it. It showed up out of the blue yesterday. It won't last. I'm not 'notable.' I don't care if Wikipedia considers me notable or not. I did not start drawing cartoons for fame or fortune. I drew them because I was disturbed by the corruption I was seeing. It was my duty as U.S. citizen to speak out against it. If I had to do it all over again, I'd be anonymous. I'm not a public figure. So take 'er down, Wikipedia.

"Wikipedia is a particularly unreliable source of knowledge and yet, because of a rumored secret-deal with Google, it ranks highly on many searches."
