I am doing a report on protein or more specifically protein deficiency, so as usual decide to take the easy way out and go on wikipedia. I was surprise to find that one of the two images Wikipedia used as an example of protein was lentils and rice(the other was the molecular structure). Is this a success for veganism?

Ummm, do you know how Wikipedia works? The content is generated by the users. Anyone can add, alter, or delete content.

Edit to add: If you need more sources for info about vegan protein, check these out:

I didn't post those pics on Wiki, but I did do a good bit of article modification on there when I first went vegan, making sure the info was accurate, etc.. Of course, it's been awhile since I've checked these out, so it's possible that my edits have been undone and are long gone...

I think of it as a win-someone posted protein sources that were vegan!
When I was researching refridgerators I found pictures at Sears that were full of vegetarian contents. Boca burgers, Amys products, Silk and produce- no meat. eggs or dairy. Found it very uplifting.

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

That's awesome.
