Herb Santos Page

Cory: Please remember that these are encyclopedia pages, not fan tribute pages. One thing to keep in mind is not to use the familiar first name, as you do throughout this page, by referring to him as "Herb." That is a no-no. We use the objective last name. We don't say "Jack" in the Dempsey page, for example, or "Joe" in the Joe Louis page. You have to be particularly careful when writing a page about a relative, as I had to. You should provide citations for certain claims (e.g., ground-breaking cases). Otherwise, it appears to be a subjective "puff piece"--unsuitable for an objective encyclopedia. (Also, it's 1970s, not 1970's, when referring to the decade.) Thanks, --Ric 17:43, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
