They linked us. We've got about a dozen Wiki links on vaious topics. I'm told webmasters really covet those links so I brag about it as much as I can. But you're right....the world seems to love Wikipedia and it's one of those places where if something is posted there some will take it as gospel truth. I never use it myself.

Granted, it's not always 100% true, but a user-created encyclapaedia, that can be updated at any time, by anyone, is a great idea!

"It's A Wonderful Life" is always what I say when asked, "what is your all-time, favorite movie?"
When I first got married we had some pretty hard times. I would get depressed a lot. This was the movie that would cheer me up. It would make me think about all that I had to be thankful for. I sitll get wet around the eyes at some point during the movie and I've seen it hundreds of times.

BBC News, 2005:
The free online resource Wikipedia is about as accurate on science as the Encyclopedia Britannica, a study shows.

The British journal Nature examined a range of scientific entries on both works of reference and found few differences in accuracy.
I happen to be one of the editors of the Wikipedia article on "It's a Wonderful Life". I challenge anyone to find an inaccuracy in it.

I didn't say "everything" on Wikipedia was inaccurate.

This is the type of movie that puts life in perspective.

"Put others before thyself and be thankful what you have, family etc." I believe that is what makes this movie timeless.
