Policies and Regulations
Plagiarism – Plagiarism is prohibited conduct and subject to sanctions, which may include suspension or expulsion. Plagiarism is defined as representing, expressly or implicitly, the work of another to be one’s own. Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, using the words of another without proper attribution, paraphrasing the words of another without proper attribution or using the ideas of another without proper attribution. Lack of knowledge of what constitutes plagiarism shall not be a defense to a charge of plagiarism.

People insist on making connections that don't exist for personal gain
(Yes Jamie got the talking points and dutifully wrote a letter that sounds eerily like Joan Dunning's. This was obviously written BEFORE the plagiarism came to light. Wonder what Jamie has to say now?)


  1. What, nobody is defending Gallegos on this one ? My my my !

    Guess there's not much to say in his Defense, but he did make the half ass apology!

  2. Yes, he is sorry he got caught walking out of the store with the CD stuffed dwon his pants. he really MEANT to pay for it - that kind of apology?

    Like Nixon, he's sorry he got caught, not sorry for what he did.

    There was a great letter to the editor (TS) that pointed out that most of the criminals that come beofer the DAs office say the same basic thing, but they still have to do time. I'll have to find that and transcribe it and post it here.


Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
