This is why spelling is important: I originally wrote that “And the Fuhrer dies”, and that’s a completely different concept. For those of you who are still researching/cursing/pondering/lambasting/or just generally checking out the Richard Ridyard Plagiarism controversy (or #plagiarismfail, as my friend Mason puts it), I have a bunch of links for you. You may read on to your hearts content, and see what other people have to say about it. I’m going to sit here and watch Ghosthunters before going to a meeting of rabid writers tonight. Then this blog will go back to it’s regularly scheduled programming…which isn’t nearly as inflammatory, but hopefully thought provoking in its own way. (As in “How did this girl get published, anyway?!) 😛
As always, feel free to comment below. I know the concept of plagiarism is extremely emotionally charged, as it should be.
And, I kid you not, I have at least 20 more links from people who have been touched by this in some way. Do you get the impression that quite a few people have been affected? Good. That’s the impression that I wanted you to get.
