    Cooks Source magazine was caught lifting, lightly retouching and using an article from somebody's blog. Instead of being apologetic, the editor, Judith Griggs, was condescending.

    And the story gets better ... Internet sleuths have discovered the magazine has lifted stories and art from Food Network, Martha Stewart and Paula Deen.

    Dear Judith,
    My attorney will be contacting your magazine owners and your condescending ass about plagiarism.

    How much editing will they need?

    So, if I take an article from the New York Times and "improve it" for the readers of the Podunk Post and Shopping News, that makes it OK?

    "Boom" will go the dynamite.

    See you in the unemployment lines, Ms. Griggs.

    The magazine basically has no choice but to fire you after that -- it will be eagerly seized upon by lawyers contending you established an atmosphere of tolerance if not tacit encouragement of plagiarism.
