Who is Melanie Sisneros, and Why Wikipedia is Awesome?
As a library employee, one of my duties is too blog. Book clubs, teen programs, and now, blogging! It’s not a bad gig, but every now and then, I just run out of ideas. Then, I got an idea on how to get an idea. I went to Wikipedia and clicked on "random article." My result was Melanie Sisneros. If it wasn’t for Wikipedia, then I would have no idea who this lady is.
They are graceful, long-necked, heavy-bodied, big-footed birds that glide majestically when swimming. They fly with slow wingbeats and with necks outstretched. No other waterfowl moves as fast as they do on the water or in the air. They mate for life. Their young are called cygnets and emerge short-necked and thickly downed. They mature at the age of three to four years and live for about 20 years in the wild and 50 years or more in captivity. They are so regal and majestic, and they seem to just glide over the water.
