Thanks for your thoughtfulness Mark. Wikiquote/Wikipedia guidelines
(as I interpret them) specify that I should not make changes to the
public facing Wikiquote/Wikipedia webpages; nor should I add links
pointing to the Quote Investigator website although other volunteer
editors are free to add them and many exist.

The QI website now has an article on the Pogo quotation concerning

Pogo Comic on Extraterrestrials: Either Way, It’s a Mighty Soberin’ Thought

If you participated in a Pogo thread then you are listed in the
acknowledgement section.

There are very few Garsons in the world so confusing Garson Kanin and
Garson O'Toole is understandable, Mark.
