Dumb, tasteless plagiarist

School's Out for Summer

And possibly forever for the Orange County, NC school board chairman. Keith Cook delivered a commencement speech to high school students, plagiarizing parts of it from the internet without attribution. He's now being pressured to resign.

Granted it's not a good thing to do (we try to limit our stolen blog posts without attribution to one or two a day). But worse, he ripped off a commencement speech given by Donna Shalala. You remember her? The Clinton Cabinet member who banned hate speech at the University of Wisconsin at Madison; the ban later being ruled unconstitutional.

The real irony of this is that Shalala's speech was 'ten deep thoughts from the movie, Titanic.' Not exactly groundbreaking originality there.

From Norman.
