I’ve been on a mission to stamp out a common bit of misinformation concerning possible Republican presidential hopeful Sarah Palin, repeated by Wesley Pruden, a journalist I much admire (“She gets it right, you betcha,” Politics, Tuesday).

In his piece Mr. Pruden says, “The lady who was mocked by wisenheimers for saying she could see Russia from her backyard now sees revenge through the windshield of her bus.”

Actually, it was Tina Fey, a “Saturday Night Live” comedian of some renown, who said that, not Mrs. Palin. Please don’t perpetuate this common myth.
