It's Not Plagiarism If You Admit You Copied It?

I'm not sure which is more damning:

- Plagiarizing a 4 year-old speech by Newt Gingrich, replete with all of its worship of Ronald Reagan ...

- Having your PR person point out that credit was given to Gingrich and his co-author Craig Shirley, which means either you or your speech writer admittedly have nothing new to say ...

- Or being led down the primrose path by Sean Hannity for another round of fearmongering about socialism.

State Assemblyman Joel Anderson is sponsoring legislation that would require 'virtual Earth' programs like Google Earth to blur schools, places of worship, government buildings, and medical facilities, because teh t3rR0r1$tS might use such programs to plan and execute their attacks.

And we know such measures would have protected Dr. George Tiller from the guy who walked right up to him and shot him in church. Or that Columbine wouldn't have happened. Or that the 9/11 hijackers wouldn't have found the World Trade Center.

Next, we'll outlaw cars because bank robbers use 'em.
