Attribution in the Internet Age

07 May

I received an email this morning containing a message titled The Gun is Civilization attributed to a Major L. Caudill USMC (Ret).  I immediately recognized both the title and the supposed author.

You see, Marko Kloos, of munchkin wrangler fame, is the actual author of The Gun is Civilization.  Here is the 2007 original post.  In 2009, after having been circulated on the internet attributed to this Maj. L. Caudill, it was published by Ted Nugent in his book Ted, White and Blue.  Thankfully, Ted made things right with Marko later that year.

The point is, boys and girls, in the age of the internets, viral emails should be researched before being forwarded.
