The best thing about writing the articles, other than it's a living sort of, is that I get to do a little research. Not full blown research, but something more than Wiki. An hour or so in the library. Online info is great, but it's hard to find some of the more obscure facts. Of course, then when I get in mixed company, I run the risk of sounding like the guy on Cheers, "A little known fact about the Colorado Mockingbird is that..."
