    two parting shots from me:

    1. If you see these quotes anywhere, debunk them immediately.  If it comes from an email forward, hit "reply to all."  The only way to kill a meme is to address it directly.  
    1. I agree with Barton on one thing: we do have to be vigilant about the quotes that we use.  Whenever you see something attributed to an historical figure, be wary of quoting it without double-checking on the source.  It's less a big deal if you're repeating it just because it sounds witty, but be especially wary if you're using that quote to defend a particular stance.
