Michael's Dispatches


10 April 2009

A reader correctly pointed out that I mis-linked a story.  In fact, we seem to have swapped links during the editing process.  Going into our 5th year, this appears to be the first time this has happened, and we greatly appreciate that a reader pointed out the error in the dispatch titled: Classic

There were no actual misquotes or misrepresentations, just an address incorrectly hyperlinked to a related story.  Still, that is too much, and the reader feedback is greatly appreciated.

It is important to add that some websites are running fast and furious with misquotes of my words.  They misquote, through sloth or intention, and build a case from there.  Nowhere have I said that rocket launchers and machineguns are being legally purchased in the United States and being shipped abroad.  I offer a $10 reward for the first person who finds such a quote from me.  I would also ask that all those who made such assertions, erroneously, send me $10 when they fail to find the quotes.

Insofar as my mislink:

The story that was actually linked: The Myth of 90 Percent: Only a Small Fraction of Guns in Mexico Come From U.S.

Should have been this story, by Matt Sanchez:

Mexican Drug Cartels Armed to the Hilt, Threatening National Security
