Second Thots

Sometimes one has to step back, take pause, and have some "second thots"

Did Dion steal quotes and ideas from Suzuki?

St├ęphane Dion
A prominent Canadian blogger has accused the St├ęphane Dion camp of plagiarism, and still no response from the Liberal leadership candidate's people. Something's got to give, folks. I guarantee it.

As I mentioned in the comments section of Steve Janke's blog, six passages from the Suzuki report are in question. Of those, three of them (the first three Janke cites) appear to be examples of direct plagiarism: copying text almost word-for-word.

Over at Cherniak's blog, I recently joked about leadership hopefuls being able to write policy on the back of a napkin and get away with it. But ripping off quotes? That they can't get away with, thanks to the efforts of bloggers like Janke. Stay tuned. This one's only started.
