We're all waiting...

Timothy Noah takes aim at yet another outbreak of plagiarism at Harvard.
1) Aren't there any conservative professors at Harvard who commit plagiarism? (Over to you, Weekly Standard.)

2) Don't they have any faculty plagiarists at Yale?
Meanwhile, Harvard's President is faced with eating his own words.
University President Lawrence H. Summers told The Crimson in an interview last week—before the allegations against Tribe surfaced—that he did not see “a big trend” of plagiarism problems at the Law School as a result of the charges against Ogletree and Dershowitz, but indicated that a third case would change his mind.

“If you had a third one, then I would have said, okay, you get to say this is a special thing, a focused problem at the Law School,” Summers said of the recent academic dishonesty cases.
Well? Now what. As I sit here, facing down a bevy of midterm assignments and reading, I wonder how lowly UT would respond to a little insignificant plagiarism on my part...no harm intended, of course. Maybe that's the problem: If you want to be a top-flight school with a lot of really respected publications, then steal other people's work.

That seems sort of obvious now.
