  • Symbol opinion vote.svg Comment: Mr. Kearns may qualify for an encyclopedia article, but so far references haven't been included to show this. Please add references to news reports (not press releases), magazine articles, interviews by independent journalists, paragraphs in books, etc., about him and his activities. Also, the text in the Career section should avoid appearing to be a publicity profile by being arranged chronologically, with his most recent work at the end. —Anne Delong (talk) 13:59, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol opinion vote.svg Comment: I can't figure out if it's promoting the Argonne Lab or the subject or using both to look good. Tone needs cleaned up and notability should be made more clear. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 02:05, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
