After the fold, I will quote the current Wikipedia entry for Isiah Thomas. It is a pretty amusing piece of work, as this is supposedly written with a “neutral viewpoint.” See for yourself if you think it reads as neutral or not.
Coming home from work yesterday, I thought I had my night planned. I had some painting I needed to do, which I would finish by 7:30.
