I deleted the Vanguard Policy Action Council link as I have found no reference to it. Perhaps this is the Vanguard PAC (political action committee)? Artificial Intelligence 15:54, 4 March 2007 (EST)

I deleted a dead link to Stephanie Dube's resume. Dube is the author of a Human Events article in the links section. However, I think it needed deleting anyway: the accompanying text read "Note: Stephanie Dube sells her services as a ghostwriter." This has nothing to do with the article, since she was writing it in her own name, and if the point the comment was making had to do with the story being favorable to its subject, I think that's pretty obvious just by it being in a rightwing rag like Human Events.

Edit Note

the following par

"The book was heavily promoted as an answer to the many so-called 'Bush-bashing books' released prior to the 2004 Presidential election, and contained chapters by many leading figures in the conservative movement, including Vice President Dick Cheney, Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly, Attorney General John Ashcroft, former Reagan Attorney General Ed Meese, supply-side economists Arthur Laffer and Stephen Moore, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson and many others."

was referenced to here which in turn references it to Wikipedia. The Wikipedia entry, however, seems to have been deleted (or relocated) - the Rod. D. Martin entry is empty. --Bob Burton 04:18, 6 December 2007 (EST)
