Wikipedia prose

I love Wikipedia, but one result of its crowd-sourced content is that the writing can sometimes be a bit idiosyncratic and disjointed. Reading the entry for Juneau, Alaska, one finds this sentence at the end of a paragraph on the city's economy:

"Tree-trunk exporting also has a fondly remembered place in Juneau's economic history."

Stuff like that is possibly my favorite part of Wikipedia.
