Like some famous American politicians my entry on the Wikipedia website has been corrupted. It starts off fine then this paragraph has been inserted:

'For many years Nigel Watson lived as an animal roaming the moors of England attempting to recreate in his mind what it must have been like to be one of the "Hounds(s) of the Baskervilles" as set forth by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. He felt that if he were to live an experience that Sherlock Holmes was familiar with he would gain greater insight into logical reasoning. For more than three years he lived in the moors and highlands raoming them naked and living off only that which the moors gave him to eat. He caused a minor stir in 2003 when a Catholic Nun saw him and was convinced that she had seen "Bigfoot," which is understandable as Nigel Watson is notable for an excess amount of body hair.'

This is obviously untrue because I don't have much body hair and the Nun knows nothing, honest!

Dude - it seems to have happened again. The entry now reveals that:

"Nigel is also known for his sense of smell. For nearly three years he worked as a "bomb sniffing dog" at Heathrow Airport. He is credited with stopping more illegal drugs from getting on planes than all of his canine co-workers combined."
I have amended the Wikipedia entry for Timothy Good. The original said that ABOVE TOP SECRET was Tim's first book, whereas it was in fact his second. His first, co-authored with Lou Zinsstag, was entitled GEORGE ADAMSKI, THE UNTOLD STORY, published in 1983. Presumably the original writer of his entry was unaware of this.
