        Subject: Appreciation for My Thoughts on Wikipedia

Thanks to Ken Friedman's thoughts on Wikipedia I read the following
concluding bit from a prose poem by Noah Eli Gordon with a wry
understanding...


An ostrich does not bury its head in the sand; it lays its neck flat to
the ground so as to appear from a distance like a mound of earth. That
facts are innumerable is not the problem. That we tend to look elsewhere
is.


"The Problem"
Noah Eli Gordon
From Is That the Sound of a Piano Coming from Several Houses Down?<
