A couple SoFla bloggers are apparently a little overwrought that a new Miami Herald columnist plagiarized a sentence in her very first column at the paper.
According to Generation Miami and Carlos Miller, columnist Jackie Bueno Sousa lifted the line "I believe that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone," from the movie Bull Durham and incorporated it into the column without attribution.
You can read all about their reasoning at their respective blogs, but, I'm sorry, I just can't get excited about this. Are we at the point where every "I like the smell of napalm in the morning," or "There's no place like home" has to be footnoted? I could be wrong but I sure don't think so. It's one lousy sentence.
That being said, Sousa does express some readily identifiable conservative points of view in the column, including one where she believes that "history will redeem" George W Bush. This revelation, of course, causes dittoheads like 26th Parallel to predictably nod their approval and gives me more reason not to take her seriously than some innocuous movie line quote.
