Wikipedia Entry for Clay Shaw

I was just reading through the Wikipedia entry for Clay Shaw, which seems woefully inadequate, considering his importance to New Orleans during a critical time, and also to the body of JFK assassination theory and history. This may be a case where the story, and his life story are so complex, whether in actuality or fictionally, that it cannot be captured properly in an encyclopedia entry.

It's true that the nuances of Shaw's life, the Jim Garrison investigation, and the Kennedy assassination in general do not lend themselves easily to simple explanations. I do not, however, that the Wikipedia article does not really give a solid list of sources for further reading, places the entry reader may go to find out the most complete set of details that can be put together about Shaw, his activities, and his role in the assassination.
