: Time magazine 8-18-03 page 65 tells of "the people's encyclopedia": www.wikipedia.org According to the article and the site, anyone can write anything about anything (and no annoying login required). There is currently a nice, moderate length entry about Jack Benny. Maybe some of you have already contributed to it. There is an open link for a contribution for Mary Livingstone.
: i went to the site and read about Jack Benny. there were only two errors: the first was the length of his radio show. i have always been told and i've researched it and his radio show ran from 1932-1955. i don't know why they count the repeat broadcasts that aired sporadically in the late '50s and tack that onto the show's official run.
the second error is the impression they give that his TV show only ran in the late '50s to the early '60s. actually it ran from 1950-1965, a full 15 years.
