From the friendly folks at the Duffel Blog:
CORRECTION: Our non-existent fact checking staff has confirmed that ‘Hoss' Cartwright was a character on Bonanza, not the Dukes of Hazzard. The writer, who is senile, has been fired and banished to the worst place on earth: Camp Buehring, Kuwait. In his defense, he was trying to make a connection between Gen. Cartwright and ‘Boss' Hogg. However, we deeply apologize for the error and are glad the entire internet is out in force to set the record straight. And also, thank you for your service.
