I posted some Maddow links on Facebook. Ma is reblogging nonsensical memes, so I went to Snopes to back my sense that they're made up.

I found an article on Jack Kirby that I liked, and linked to it.

So I'd been linking to Snopes to fight mistaken "facts," and I found a tiny inaccuracy in this Snopes article, which makes me sad. J.M. DeMatties is the "J.M." in comic books who ISN'T named Joe. (JML and JMS are of course both "Joe'). I think DeMatteis goes by "Marc."

I hope that sort of mistake doesn't put people off Snopes.

I think I'll send them a note....

Done.
I enjoyed your piece on Jack Kirby.

But I was surprised to see you refer to J.M. DeMatteis as "Joe DeMatteis." I believe he goes by "Marc." There are two famous comic-book writers with the initials "J.M." that may have confused the writer: Joseph Michael Linsner and J. Michael Straczynski both go by "Joe." Marc DeMatteis's first name appears to be "John."
