Where's the beef?[edit]

This is unusual... When I searched for Frank Sinatra, the wikipedia page was half way down the list on the first page of results. Its unusual because a wiki page is usually the #1 or #2 search result.

After reading the article, I'm left wondering, Where's the beef? There's really no substance here. Its mostly filed with quotes.

I wanted to read about his career, his life and his death. There's also a mug shot of him circulating on the web as an image, so I wanted to read about it, too.
