  1. And after the U-2 was shot down Eisenhower had the Air Force and CIA start Project Corona to launch the first spy satellite. My father was a key engineer on that project. On its first successful mission it produced more photographic coverage of the Soviets than all the U-2 missions and all previous surveillance combined.

  2. I think it is great that students put their work on Wikipedia; it makes writing essays more real, and it contributes to the public knowledge. I hope that editing and writing Wikipedia articles will become a bigger part of high school English classes

  3. Offering more than 15 million articles, Wikipedia has become today a monumental collaborative project, exceeding in quantity and quality all other general encyclopedias placed end to end. And students have their place on it, of course!
