Hi there, It looks like Trent Franks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trent_Franks) is a fan of wikipedia, but needs some information about how it works. He quotes Wikipedia, ``One year after the Fort Hood shooting, the motivations of the perpetrator were not yet established.'', maybe he needs to learn how to update the article if he has more information about it. Why would quoting wikipedia here be something that is a good idea? As if the article is always the most up to date. I think that quoting the sources are more import. He could add tags as well. Maybe someone should sit down with him and give him some tutoring.
