Sometimes I like to look things up in Wikipedia. Don't ask why. You can't trust it as a source.
But there's something about it, particularly the tone of the language and all of the ridiculous links that make me feel like I'm posing the question to the person next to me - - not really looking it up.
Sometimes I laugh at the editorial undertones - especially what is omitted - love that part the best. There's something about half-knowledge that seems very American to me. I'm sure Benjamin Franklin would have agreed.
Baseball, apple pie and Wikipedia.
