based on his radio stories[edit]

These short stories, later retold in A Christmas Story, were retellings of the stories he told on his radio program. It would be nice to find a source to support that. Dlabtot (talk) 01:49, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

In God We Trust, All Others Pay CashIn God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash – Should use colon (:) instead of a comma (,). George Ho (talk) 03:00, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

  • Weak support. The present title is more or less unique to Wikipedia and is therefore probably insupportable. On the other hand, styling this title as if "all others pay cash" were a subtitle isn't really right, because it isn't one. On the third hand, sources including Amazon and Google books do format the title with the colon. Styling the title as In God We Trust (All Others Pay Cash) would be my preferred option, but that rendering is much less common in the (online) sources that I checked. I'd support the proposed title as an improvement on the present one, but I wish we could do even better. 209.211.131.181 (talk) 16:36, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Worldcat for the first edition uses a comma. 2601:D:3080:EA2:6588:A197:BBC9:A241 (talk) 18:00, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. There are wide variations in how the title is presented (colons, commas, dashes, parentheses, no punctuation at all). Bookrags, Alibris, iTunes, IMDB, WordandFilm.com, North Texas Libraries, and others use commas. However, the publisher itself (Doubleday/Random House) uses a colon.[1] That seems authoritative, to me. - Tim1965 (talk) 16:11, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
