RE: Does George Housner deserve better?

Isn't the concept of Wikipedia that it's user's written encyclopedia?  Those articles do not write themselves, so knock yourself out.  If you are looking for volunteers for this project, why don't you ask, as opposed to criticizing Wikipedia.

Phuong:
One of your two links to information on George Housner is 25 years old, another cannot be found. Anyway, when Wikipedia, which represents itself as an encyclopedia, tells us about only few facts of his biography without mentioning his awards and achievements (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_W._Housner), it looks fishy.
