Lehman Replaces Palin as Wikipedia Plaything

A reader just pointed out to me that mischievous sorts are messing with Wikipedia by inserting supposed "facts" in the entry there about troubled investment bank Lehman Brothers. Here is the insert, which was removed a scant few minutes later as unsourced:

Liquidation

On September 12, 2008 Lehman was told by banking regulators it will have to acquired by a solvent entity. Lehman executives have pleaded to delay the bad news by until September 13th, so that they can have a hand who acquires Lehman. Lehman has made a valid case in suggesting two or three buyers to the banking regulators.

I guess the traveling wolf pack at Wikipedia has moved on from Sarah Palin edits to doing Lehman edits.
