Dear Editor:
Immigrants are not the only ones experiencing problems with information posted on Wikipedia (see 09/04/08 ID comment). You might be interested in the complaint, Berg v. Obama (USDC Eastern District of Philadelphia, August 21, 2008) No. 08CV4083, in which Wikipedia figures prominently as a source for questioning Barack Obama's citizenship. This complaint was filed by someone who says he is an attorney, too. I note for the record that a lot of the law cited in the complaint is wrong, and no one should rely on it.

Margaret Stock, Esq.
