List of misquotations[edit]

I have reverted the following comment added to List of misquotations by an editor using this IP address, about the famous "don't fire till you see the whites of their eyes" quote attributed to Andrew Jackson:

  • This is rarely attributed to Jackson and any moran knows that it is about Bunker Hill. [1]

First of all, no source is provide for the claim "rarely attributed". It would be more appropriate to change the equally unsourced use of the phrase "usually attributed" to someone like "often attributed". Second, the point about Bunker Hill has already been made, making this comment seem more like the editor's irritation than useful factual information about this quote. Finally, someone who misspells the word "moron" should be very careful about using this insulting term. ☺ ~ Jeff Q (talk) 23:16, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
