I just sent the following to adjudication@guinnessworldrecords.com; please add your voice. Damn birthers are everywhere these days...
To whom it may concern, I was very disappointed to hear that you have decided to deny Fauja Singh the record for being the world's oldest marathon runner [1]. His age is well enough documented to satisfy the British Home Office (grantors of his passport) --- surely that is as reliable as anything else he could produce? On behalf of everyone inspired by his courage and determination, I ask you to reconsider. Sincerely, Dr. Gregory V.
