Dammit, Melvin is from Marana/Oro Valley/Casas Adobes, not Tucson.

I really hate misattribution and don't swing the way he does, politically, but the article made clear the misattribution dates back to the 1940s and that others, including Reagan, have been misled.  It's not, as subby seems to imply, that he made it up wholesale out of his head.  This isn't really news beyond the fact check.

Meh, mistakes happen.  I remember a good fark thread when some anti-war protestors picked up "There's no honorable way to kill, no gentle way to destroy. There is nothing good in war except its ending" from that old episode of Star Trek and attributed it to actual Lincoln.  Good times.  Can't find the thread now, since it was like 10 years ago.  Crap, I'm getting old.

Is putting this in the geek tab some kind of meta-commentary on misattribution?

While I agree mistakes happen I do think that we should hold presidents and state senators up to a higher standard of the sources they cite than a random farker.
