Someone's been busy this week.

Wikipedia now has articles on Metro Councilmen courtesy of someone named Daniel Bush whose main interests seem to be zoning at Percy Priest Lake, Lower Broad and the Westin development, Gaylord Opryland Resort and the Nashville Sounds.

I got curious and started checking all the current council member names and if a person isn't listed, either Mr. Bush didn't create the entry, there is none or there is no mention of Mr. Bush's core issues of Westin, Gaylord, Percy Priest, Sylvan Park and the Nashville Sounds.

[4] On the third reading, he voted in favor of the proposal for a new ballpark for the Nashville Sounds,[5] which included provisions for hotels, condos, shops and other businesses on the land adjacent to the stadium.[6]"

We may need a Wiki entry for the very busy Mr. Daniel Bush to explain why these issues are of such a concern to him that he's expended so much time and energy on this project. In the meantime here's his entry for Wikipedia adminship.
3. Have you been in any conflicts over editing in the past or do you feel other users have caused you stress? How have you dealt with it and how will you deal with it in the future?
A:
All of my articles have been rather noncontroversial, centered on mostly on low profile politicians and executive branch positions. On the whole, I don't think I have never entered an edit conflict. Daniel Bush 04:56, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
And here's his UserTalk page.

Councilmen may want to keep an eye on their newly created pages for accuracy.

And it doesn't stop there. Rob Briley has a newly minted page courtesy of Mr. Bush as of September 13, 2007.

I wonder if it's this Daniel Bush (2nd entry)?

Interesting. I'll make some inquiries.

From that link:

"One of the sleuths in the Gutknecht incident is a 15-year-old Wikipedia "editor" from Nashville who says he acted out of no malice for Gutknecht, but rather to protect the integrity of the controversial online encyclopedia, which invites the public to volunteer information for its entries."

"There’s a policy against autobiographical edits," said the volunteer editor, Daniel Bush, who says he is home-schooled by his parents in Tennessee. "At Wikipedia, we call these ‘edit wars.’ "

And from Gutknecht's Wikipedia entry:

On August 16, 2006, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Gutknecht's office twice -- on July 24 and August 14, 2006 -- removed a 128-word section in the Wikipedia article on him, replacing it with a more flattering 315-word entry taken from his official congressional biography. Most of the removed text was about the 12-year term-limit Gutknecht imposed on himself in 1995. A spokesperson for Gutknecht did not dispute that his office changed his Wikipedia entry, but questioned the fundamental reliability of the encyclopedia itself. [3][4].

I'm sure if you wanted to add to Mr. Bush's wikipedia work based on the issues *you* care about, the editors would appreciate it. Wiki, after all, is "the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit."
