Hi all. In response to my inquiry about:
> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moonbow [...] Also Durham, North Carolina
Tony Rice did some digging, and found it was a fraudulent update.
Which just goes to show why Wikipedia isn't a "true" reference source.
The entry has also already been corrected, which shows one of the
reasons Wikipedia is better than traditional published encyclopedias.
Once something gets in one of those, it's in 'till the next edition.
