Ben Franklin didn't say that.

"When the legend becomes fact, print the legend."

It no longer matters if Ben Franklin said it or didn't.
I completely disagree.  It matters.

Well, it may matter to you but you're too late. That horse is out of the barn.

Again, I completely disagree.  It's all about education.

Check out this page.  The owner of the store is a friend of mine, when I looked at the page before he launched I gave him my thoughts, and he changed the quote. ;D

"We both have truths.  Are yours the same as mine." - P. Pilot as as quoted by Andrew Lloyd Weber.

Not really disagreeing with your position but in the society many of us on the forum live in you would be hard pressed to prove what "truth" is.

In terms of this one, it's been proven.  And I beg you not to quote Android Lou Weber!  ;)

Popular t-shirts with a quote people want to believe are going to win this one, I believe.

True or not, this quote will live on.

So we disagree.  I think we can agree on that.

Oh, I agree with you.  Unfortunately, these days knowledge is dumbed down to popular opinion.

I don't disagree that the quote will live on, but I think it matters.  It is marketing without substance, based on a lie, and I can't support that.  But you go ahead. ;)

Reminds me of a George Raft quote. Back in the 30s he had more than $10 million. Just before he died he was living in a nursing home and was interviewed by a report who asked what happened.

He said he "spent part of the money on gambling, part for horses, part for booze, and part for women. The rest I spent foolishly."

Gotta love a person who has his priorities right.
