Elvie Thomas

Am I the only person who has noticed just how much Wikipedia sucks? (See: I won’t even provide a link.) Wikipedia has no listing on Elvie Thomas and when mentioned on Geeshie Wiley’s page it refers to Thomas as a man! Yes, for things that don’t much matter, like Sirius Black’s family background, Wikipedia is the go-to source. And it is good for a lot of hard science (but not all; there are errors; and you are usually better off going elsewhere—like a book). It is terrible for history and politics; for example, it seems there is no consensus that George Hearst was a villainous bastard (which he most clearly was). For little known artists and thinkers: forget about it.
