    Ramiro Burr is a pretty big name as far as music writing goes, esp. in the tejano community. Now he's out at the E-N after allegations that he's used a ghost writer ... for seven years.

    I hope he was making some decent coin on the side to be able to afford the ghostwriter.

    He and the bowling blogger will be happy together.

    Looks like the ghostwriter has a new job.

    This just days after the Express-News updated its newsroom ethics policy. The shop has had some challenges in that regard over the years.

    That paper has some major issues, judging from some of the horror stories going around.

    Man, no kidding:

    * Former sports editor Mitch Krugel's plagiarism problem. http://apse.dallasnews.com/oct2000/3-5sheppard.html

    * The Harry Page debacle. http://blogs.mysanantonio.com/weblogs/richter/archives/2007/11/page_veteran_sp.html

    * The story that quoted dead people. http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/religion/stories/MYSA012808.01A.marriage.299a699.html

    * Jim Dent's crash and burn. http://www.dallasobserver.com/2003-12-11/news/last-call/full

    * And it was Jayson Blair's lifting of details from an Express-News story that ignited that brouhaha (clearly, not the Express-News' fault). http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/features/2004/12/nytimes200412

    The Harry Page incident still upsets me to this day ... totally unjustified.

    If I'm going to get fired for plagarism, it sure as hell isn't going to be plagarizing for a bowling blog.

    More likely, it will be for an inability to spell.
