Harrison, Garfield Pardons Revoked by Blast Magazine

In a Blast Magazine article here, a "journalist" named Michael Corcoran writes:
George Washington only gave out 16 pardons, and William Henry Harrison and James Garfield, did not use pardons at all.
Now, that is some news! Pre-emptive, blanket pardons are b-o-r-i-n-g. And this is all certainly news to Elijah Rhea, James P. Smith and James Birch. They were all thinking that they were pardoned by President Harrison in March of 1841. Rhea and Smith actually think they were sprung from prison! John G. Wustum, Spopee (an Indian), Theodore Neilson, Charles P. Scott and Donald D. Cameron need to be informed that they were not pardoned by James Garfield in 1881. Spopee, in particular, has been misinformed. He actually thinks Garfield saved his life!
