Talk:1970s

From Sajun.org

I don't like all the US "world leaders", Agnew, Mondale, Rockefeller. What happens when every country adds its roster of second-rank politicians? "World leaders" itself seems a rather NPOV term, or at least vague. Hotlorp

I removed Olivia Newton-John and Gordon Lightfoot from the list of entertainers, because I don't think they're important enough. I'm willing to be proved wrong, but I doubt it can be backed up. Tuf-Kat

I've added Loretta Lynn to the entertainers because she was voted "Artist of the Decade" by the Academy of Country Music. Why are there two categories for musical entertainers? Tiles 04:58 Apr 22, 2003 (UTC)

I just moved all the musicians that were in the 'Entertainers' section to the 'Music' section. I think the problem arose because most of the other 'decade' pages don't have a 'Music' section, and musicians were put into the Entertainers section. Later on, someone probably decided to add a 'Music' section but forgot to move the musicians that were already listed. --Lancevortex 11:13, 28 Apr 2004 (UTC)

I've removed the red-linked entertainers (Shaun Cassidy, Marlo Thomas, Cheryl Tiegs, Jimmie Walker), as in my opinion, if they're not considered major enough to have a Wikipedia article, then they're not major enough to be on the list of Entertainers of the decade. Feel free to disagree and reinstate! --Lancevortex 11:13, 28 Apr 2004 (UTC)



Added Secretariat as a Sports Figure - as he was (and is) a major icon of the 1970s.
