And I suppose the Nutcracker Suite is another popular ballet, as are both suites from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet. Excuse the sarcasm, but this has been lying around now in the Trustworthy Encyclopedia for well over a year and none of over 1500 visitors has thought to put it right. How many homeschoolers now think that old Igor wrote a ballet called Firebird Suite? AlanE 15:43, 26 August 2008 (EDT)

And you are unable to make a correction why? Karajou 15:46, 26 August 2008 (EDT)
Other than being angry/sarcastic about something rather insignificant, why not just make a revision? For what it's worth, there is the Nutcracker Suite, as well as the Suites from Romeo and Juliet. Suite, in this context, means "music taken from the ballet to be performed without the dance." So I really don't get your problem. see also Suite (aka "Concert suite for orchestra No. 1"), which is "The Firebird". --MHayes 15:53, 26 August 2008 (EDT)

Both K and MH. My revision appeared on "Recent Additions" within a few seconds of my comments. Look! Yes there are Suites from all these ballets...but they are not the ballets...they are part of the ballets edited for concert hall performances. I know what you are getting at, but the original article inferred the suite was the ballet. (And interestingly, I am not sure why he wrote a suite for The Firebird when it's only about 40-45 minutes long.) My main worry is the number of articles I come across on the Random link that stay incorrect for so long with so many views. Please check my contributions and notice that I not only correct them as I find them, but frequently turn them into something worthwhile. AlanE 16:15, 26 August 2008 (EDT)

forgive my assumptions. I think i am being "hyper tone aware" or something, in that lots of people sound cranky to my ears online. I understand about finding lots of articles that need serious work. I am finding many myself. Since many of these were written by Andy's students, it's reasonable they are awkward, especially if he (Andy) has students with a variety of ages and backgrounds. Sometimes I read something and go "holy heck, what?" Then I remember they were likely written by kids not even in highschool, and I say "ah, right..." I would be frightened to re-read my own highschool works and see how bad my writing was "back then".  :) Hugs. Michelle.--MHayes 17:13, 26 August 2008 (EDT)
