I'm a sucker for self-reference

A writer for The Daily Toreador, the newspaper of Texas Tech University, has been fired for plagiarism.  He wrote two columns which the paper alleges was based on the blog posting of another writer.  The subject of the columns and the blog posting:  plagiarism.  Even better is the fact that the blogger was arguing that plagiarism wasn’t wrong (so maybe the fired writer’s only sin was consistency).  I guess I should note that I found the link at Fark.
