Wikipedia fund drive

Answering the call of their annual fund drive, I sent my contribution to the Wikimedia Foundation tonight. I use the Wikipedia site almost daily for confirmation of something I thought I already knew, or to learn something I’m curious about. It’s a remarkable resource for us all and it’s free. Not always accurate, especially since anybody can edit any entry except for a very few that are protected—mostly the ones regarding famous personalities. Who, for example, would intentionally mess with articles about the making of shoelaces, toothpicks or Post-It notes? Aircraft carriers? Maybe.
