This article is overdue for an update. Peter K Burian (talk) 13:04, 12 June 2020 (UTC)

Agreed. Is there a reason you are unable to update it? ‡ Єl Cid of Valencia talk 13:17, 12 June 2020 (UTC)


It's a sign of very sloppy editing and writing that this article is much too long and hard to follow because full of inappropriate details that smother essential info and even prevent editors from noticing essential missing info. For example, there are completely inappropriate amounts of information about Davis's business ventures and failures, but there's nothing about when and how his citizenship was revoked, which is especially bizarre since the article talks about it being restored. --Espoo (talk) 16:15, 14 June 2020 (UTC)
