I've heard this line so many times it's a cliche now, but I'm wondering if anyone knows who it was that coined the phrase "rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic"?

I did searched Google and Bartleby, and so far, nada.

Anyone?

I posted it to the Phrases, Sayings and Cliches bulletin board. We'll see if anyone replies.
