One reason I'm glad I no longer edit news

From The Associated Press:

WASHINGTON - Greed is good. A world without nukes is better.

Actor Michael Douglas, whose performance as the conniving Gordon Gekko in "Wall Street" won him an Oscar in 1987, spent part of Wednesday evening focused on a more critical cause -- ridding the world of nuclear weapons....

Memo to AP: Michael Douglas never said "Greed is good." Gordon Gekko, a character played by Michael Douglas, said "Greed is good." Gordon Gekko never said "A world without nukes is better." It's Michael Douglas who -- oh, never mind....

But just for future reference, AP: As far as we know, Mr. Douglas' father, Kirk Douglas, still has both ears intact.
