  • Is it any wonder that Jim Jones convinced people to follow him and drink Kool Aid?
    Evelyn you also know you've been in the biz too long when talking to the CVB and they don't know about that fresco or most of the other attractions.
  • My niece's husband is a university professor. One of his classes is on ethics. Five times in the last two years he's failed students - who are either health care providers or counsellors - for plagiarism.

    The problem is that plagiarism doesn't sound nasty. Theft, piracy, those words suggest the seriousness of what was done. But plagiarism doesn't even seem like a white collar crime to most people.
  • Ed, yes, alarming. Ditto alarming is the fact-checker for a major magazine I write for who asked me whether the fresco I wrote in a 16th century church was a painting or a sculpture.

    A few days ago a professional travel writer who has blogged for Tripatini found that someone had lifted a story she'd written for one website and put it on another website -- with no permission, no payment, no nothing. Call it plagiarism or call it theft of intellectual property; I call it bad.

    In yesterday's New York Times, there's a story about plagiarism on campus. Great anecdote here:

    "At DePaul University, the tip-off to one student’s copying was the purple shade of several paragraphs he had lifted from the Web; when confronted by a writing tutor his professor had sent him to, he was not defensive — he just wanted to know how to change purple text to black."

    These are tomorrow's editors, tomorrow's (or even today's) internet entrepreneurs. Am I wrong to find this alarming?
  • Lisa,
