This property contains the text summary of a referenced item, for display within lists or trees. It may contain wikicode, although square brackets do not seem to work when using the [[property::value]] syntax; use the {{#set:property=value}} syntax instead.

Type="Text" is usable but not quite right. Wikicode displays correctly in the footer of the page using this property, but displays in raw form on the property page's listing of pages using it.

Type="String" seems to be identical, except that it has a 255-character length restriction (which isn't likely to be a problem, but doesn't confer any useful advantages for this property).


This property has the following 1 subproperty:

/Kentucky Democratic Congressional Candidate Goes Undercover +For the past couple months I worked for [[United Parcel Service]], [[US/KY/Louisville|Louisville]] [[US/KY|Kentucky]], as an “air handler” loading and unloading cargo aircraft...
/Ukraine’s Donetsk calls for referendum +The City Council in the eastern city of Donetsk has refused to recognize [[Ukraine]]’s self-imposed government and called for a referendum on the region’s status. The council has made Russian alongside Ukrainian the official language in the region.


1972/06/17/Libertarian Party Platform of 1972 +"We, the members of the [[US Libertarian Party|Libertarian Party]], challenge the cult of the omnipotent state, and defend the rights of the individual."
1988/09/16/The Lesser Evil +"The principal theoretical defect of nonoriginalism, in my view, is its incompatibility with the very principle that legitimizes judicial review of constitutionality. Nothing in the text of the Constitution confers upon the courts the power to inquire into, rather than passively assume, the constitutionality of federal statutes."
1999/01/24/ACPI extensions +an email from [[Bill Gates]] suggesting that the [[ACPI]] be designed in such a way as to prevent it from working with anything except [[Microsoft Windows]]


2004-01-21 Best of the Web Today +a potpourri of news items, including "The al Qaeda Cheering Section" in which Taranto [[dissent is disloyalty|equates]] dislike of the [[USA PATRIOT Act|Patriot Act]] with being fond of [[terrorist]]s.
2004/04/04/Altering of Worker Time Cards Spurs Growing Number of Suits +"Experts on compensation say that the illegal doctoring of hourly employees' time records is far more prevalent than most Americans believe. The practice, commonly called shaving time, is easily done and hard to detect — a simple matter of computer keystrokes — and has spurred a growing number of lawsuits and settlements against a wide range of businesses."
2004/12/31/A Big Push On Social Security +"[[George W. Bush|President Bush]]'s political allies are raising millions of dollars for an election-style campaign to promote [[US/Social Security/private accounts|private Social Security accounts]], as Democrats and Republicans prepare for what they predict will be the most expensive and extensive public policy debate since the 1993 fight over the [[Clinton-Gore administration|Clinton administration]]'s failed health care plan."

2005-09-12 WTC7 Collapse: The Real Story (not tinfoil) +“I see a semi-regular appearance of the idea that the WTC7 building (part of the [[World Trade Center/NYC/v1|WTC complex]] but not one of the [[World Trade Center/NYC/v1/twin towers|Twin Towers]]) [[9-11/anomalies/WTC7|collapsed]] due to [[controlled demolition|deliberate demolition]] rather than due to damage from the Twin Tower collapses. This is pretty implausible so I did some internet research to find out why so many people believe it and what actually happened.”
2005/08/03/Why Most Published Research Findings Are False +"Simulations show that for most study designs and settings, it is more likely for a research claim to be false than true. Moreover, for many current scientific fields, claimed research findings may often be simply accurate measures of the prevailing bias. In this essay, I discuss the implications of these problems for the conduct and interpretation of research."
2006/07/02/Farm Program Pays $1.3 Billion to People Who Don't Farm +"Nationwide, the federal government has paid at least $1.3 billion in [[farm subsidies|subsidies]] for rice and other crops since 2000 to individuals who do no farming at all, according to an analysis of government records by The [[Washington Post]]."
2006/12/12/Most Americans see lingering racism in others +"Most Americans, white and black, see [[racism]] as a lingering problem in the United States, and many say they know people who are racist, according to a new poll.

2007-12-31 Liberals Against Diversity +“The ''[[New York Times]]'' op-ed page is trying to go from bad to diverse. The page has hired [[William Kristol]], editor of ''[[The Weekly Standard]]'', as a weekly columnist, starting next Monday. The Politico reports that word of the hiring "caused a frenzy in the liberal blogosphere Friday night, with threats of canceling subscriptions and claims that the Gray Lady had been hijacked by neo-cons"”
2007/02/01/Wal-Mart pays itself rent, gets large tax breaks +[[Wal-Mart]], the nation's largest employer and the world's biggest retailer, is regularly paying itself rent and using the transaction to decrease the taxes it pays to state governments, according to a report in this morning's ''[[Wall Street Journal]]''.
2007/04/16/New Research Shows Wal-Mart Rigs the System +[[Wal-Mart]] appears to be skipping out on its fair share of taxes that most Americans have to pay to help support state governments. New research conducted in part by a leading non-partisan, non-profit tax organization reveals that Wal-Mart avoided $2.3 billion in state income taxes, cutting its payment to state governments almost in half between 1999 and 2005.
2007/09/28/Floating Utopias +"Since 2003, a colossal barge called the [[Freedom Ship]], of debatable tax status, should have been chugging with majestic aimlessness from port to port, a leviathan rover with more than 40,000 wealthy full-time residents living, working and playing on deck. That was the aim eight years ago when the project first made headlines, confidently claiming that construction would start in 2000."
2007/The New American Movement and the Los Angeles Socialist Community School +"Here I provide a short account of [[New American Movement|NAM]]'s history and a description of a school it opened in Los Angeles in the 1970s, both of which form a unique link between the study of everyday life and the practice of [[socialism]]."

2010-06-09/Efforts to Limit the Flow of Spill News +Journalists struggling to document the impact of the [[Deepwater Horizon oil spill|oil rig explosion]] have repeatedly found themselves turned away from public areas affected by the spill, and not only by [[BP]] and its contractors, but by local law enforcement, the Coast Guard and government officials.
2010/04/16/Solar power in Ontario could produce almost as much power as all U.S. nuclear reactors +"[[Solar power]] in southeastern Ontario has the potential to produce almost the same amount of power as all the nuclear reactors in the United States, according to two new studies."
2010/09/09/Why the Rich Need the Poor +They’d like to think otherwise, but the rich won’t recover until the rest of America does, too.
2010/10/21/Hobby Lobby's religious real estate hobby +"But real estate -- that's the fun part. By the time the Greens closed on the Northfield campus late last year, the previous owners had grown weary of spending millions on annual upkeep and the price had come way down. They got the core of the campus -- 48 buildings and 217 acres, without the surrounding woodlands -- for $100,000."
