Carey, you are being moronic. Plagerism is when you quote entire articles (as you did in the post I edited) without attributing it to a source. Plagerism is also when you swipe any idea from someone else and play it off as if it is your own.
When you attribute properly, it is not plagerism, even if the crap you attribute is just that CRAP.
The problem with people like you and people who would write this little bullshit peice as above, is that you don't care about anything beyond your minimal sphere of influence. I would be embarrassed to forward that email, and its sad that you don't realize how pathetic everything HE said is.
Yes, you will notice I said HE. You see, these things are quite easily checked and if you bothered you would find out that it WASN'T written by Pam Foster...instead:
This was not written by Pam Foster of Atlanta. She was apparently a person who merely quoted a portion of the original commentary and it got circulated as though she had written it.
TruthOrFiction contacted the person who wrote the original article, columnist Doug Patton. His daily column of social and political commentary is seen in several newspapers and on several web sites. The comments in the Pam Foster email were from a column he wrote for publication on June 6, 2005, the original of which is below.
