um, helloooooo!!!

I came across this story on the Techdirt blog titled … "Shoud Judges Cite Wikipedia?"  I mean, HELLOOOOOO!!!  If seventh grade middle schoolers shouldn't cite Wikipedia for their Supreme Court case research projects (Two paragraphs, note cards and bibliography required, a minimum of three sources–two of which must be print–Thank you very much!), then what the hell are JUDGES doing citing it?  I mean, okay, I love Wikipedia for getting me the information that I need when I want to know what, Julie, the Mormon girl from the Real World–New Orleans is doing now, but geez … These people went to law school?   And passed the bar?  And cite Wikipedia?  Come on people!!!

  1. HA HA HA! Excuse me and the CEO of Wikipedia says to NOT and I repeat NOT cite Wikipedia as a source. How can judges cite wikipedia? I know a guy who failed an MLIS program because he cited Wikipedia. Geez, people…thank goodness we teach kids about website reliability.
