You Can Fool Some of the People...:

My puzzle in today's Times should be right up a lot of Volokh readers' alleys. You'll learn some interesting pieces of trivia (and shed some light on the title of this post).

As I was solving the puzzle today, I was thinking to myself, that the quotes weren't really quotes. Thanks for helping to set the record straight.

Fun one. I got 33-across very early and figured out where it was going long before I got all the letters in 50 and 62. Well worth a buck, thanks. ;)

Why doesn't the Times credit the puzzle's author the way the New York Sun does?

S. Keith,
I'm not sure if you meant that the Times should credit the author at all or more than it currently does. A lot of people seem to think there is no author credit, when, in fact there is (in small font under the grid). As to why it's in a small font, and at the bottom, I have no idea.

For those of you who did solve it, I chose the subject line of today's post because apparently that quote, too (as attributed to Lincoln) is apocryphal.

I was looking for a "Luke, I am your father" in there. (I suppose that's splitting hairs, ok ok.)

For the record, the online version of the puzzle puts the author's name in a decent font at the top of the puzzle.

"Luke, I am your father" was on my list. As were "Just the facts, ma'am" and "Me Tarzan, you Jane." I welcome hearing about any others that people know of.

Yes, I spent the buck too S. Keith and it so happened I had watched the DVD of 33-across yesterday, so it filled in very easily :-)

Good job, Kevin. I hadn't noticed your name when I did the puzzle. It's almost like knowing the author.
