Not exactly the same, but I can guarantee you that Mitt Romney's Wikipedia article was written by one of his staffers.
"Although the campus was becoming radicalized with the beginnings of 1960s social and political movements, Romney kept a well-groomed appearance and enjoyed traditional campus events."
"In any case, maximizing the value of acquired companies and the return to Bain's investors, not job creation, was the firm's fundamental goal, as it was for most private equity operations."
"While there have been many biographical parallels between the lives of George Romney and his son Mitt,[nb 23] one particular difference is that while George was willing to defy political trends, Mitt has been much more willing to adapt to them. "
"Throughout his business, Olympics, and political career, Romney's instinct has been to apply the "Bain way" towards problems."

Jonathan Edwards, folk musician
Edwards toured as the lead in the Broadway musical Pumpboys and Dinettes when he met an old friend from the folk circuit, Wendy Waldman, in Nashville. She and Mike Robertson convinced Edwards to come to town and record a country album. "I've been making country-sounding records all my life, but never in Nashville. Yeah, let's do it." Edwards said. So, Natural Thing was produced, recorded, and released on MCA/Curb Records in 1989. "I was crazy about the songs we selected from those great Nashville writers, and the acoustic-based production that Wendy and I put together was just a joy to make and to listen to. I count that as one of the best albums I've ever been involved with."

Brandyn "H*Wood" Bordeaux (born March 6, 1988) is an American born mash-up recording artist. H*Wood is a proud Denver, Colorado musician whose music reflects his elecletic upbringing ranging between electronic, pop, dance and dub-step all while effortlessly rapping the lyrics; the style is considered to be innovative considering electronic and dub-step are generally genres known for its music production rather than its lyrics.

Concerning his writing lyrics, he has stated in one interview, "...it's a connection to the sub-conscious a side-stepping of the rational brain to let what's in you spiritually manifest itself in your creative medium. I mess with words as they come flying out of my brain uninvited. I think it's more like prose-poetry sometimes, hypertext, concentrated meaning in a seemingly abstract construction. It can be a little puzzling but there is a narrative but not in the literal sense we are used to... You have to absorb and translate...";and in another, "...you have to make the words count, but the order in which you put them is the really fun time. It's all code, puzzles, concentrated meaning. It has a surreal coloring but it's much less random than you'd expect." About how his writing style has changed over the years, he has said, “...I began with a much more structured style of writing that fit the conventional pop song structure, I think within that structure you can create puzzles and language is a beautiful instrument to manipulate in this way. I have tried to move into more abstract , DADA territory with some of the later work, the meaning becomes coded like hypertext. The narrative is back to front or a zig-zag pattern of small movies. Tone Poet is a balance that can be achieved between narrative and nonsense, they’re interchangeable and I really have no idea sometimes what is going to happen until I sing, it’s instinctive mostly but occasionally the words are written down randomly and call to you in a sequence that fits."
Clearly a genius.

Professional Children's School was founded by two reform-minded New Yorkers, Jane Harris Hall and Jean Greer Robinson. Ardent theatre-goers, the women learned of the plight of the city's professional children - young people working on the New York stage. Public and private schools of the day did not accommodate the schedules of stage children and, more often than not, children were simply skipping school to work on the stage. Some reformers talked of banning children from the stage entirely. Determined to help these "unknown friends on the other side of the footlights," as Mrs. Robinson would later write, the women decided to found a school especially for New York's professional children. On 6 January 1914, PCS admitted its first two students in borrowed quarters in the Theater District. An immediate success, the school enrolled over 100 students within its first year.
