The secretly subversive Wikipedia mail of the day

I subscribe to the wikipedia daily article mailing list. It has an article of the day, several articles for events in history on this day, and then ends with a wikiquote.

Given the theme of my recent posts, I thought this Wikiquote was appropriate:

“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forego their use.” – Galileo Galilei

These quotes are usually a shaded reference to the news of the day. I’ll see if I can gather some examples, but many of these not-so-subtle hintings are quite humorous.
