Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

As we know from the "Wikipedia" entry on Wikipedia, Wikipedia can be edited by anyone. And apparently a few select Jets fans have put down their stone tools and cave paint brushes and figured out a little basic HTML. How do I know? Just check out the Wikipedia entry on the Miami Dolphins and scroll down to the review of last Monday's 31-27 Dolphins victory. Here's the excerpt if you're a Jet fan and can't understand the concept of hyperlink:

Chad Pennington recently suffered a shoulder injury against the San Diego Chargers and is out for the 2009 season. Chad Henne has been named starting quarterback. The Dolphins' current record is (2-3) Miami Dolphins defeated the New York Jets on Monday Night Football using the wildcat very effectively. The Jets played very well, however it came down to whoever had the ball last.

"It came down to whoever had the ball last?!" When I read that, all I hear is:

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
