Ah, the blogosphere...

Tom got this e-mail response to my most recent Sunday Musing:
I usually like Chet Raymo's musings, but the column for September 2 is full of blatant plagiarism. Raymo made me curious about the poem he quotes. A casual search led to the blog below, where Raymo stole much of "his" musings: (the respondent then gives the URL of another blog). I suggest that Raymo take it down and apologize to the writer whose words he lifted without attribution.
Lest anyone else made the same mistake, they can check my Boston Globe column for March 13, 2001, and my blog posting for May 1, 2005. There is a lack of attribution going on here, but it is not mine.
