  1. I am sorry someone is stealing your work. That is what plagiarism is you know; just a fancy way of saying, “stealing.” Plain and simple it is theft and in today’s society, that seems to be acceptable behavior. However, there are many people – just like me and you – that know a low crawling, skunk licking, butt thief when we see them. Hold the line where it should be. Draw it in the sand and dare the stupid butt-hole lickers to cross it. When they do, stick it to them in whatever manner you can! It seems in today’s world, you have to take care of taking out the garbage on your own. Good luck, keep it up. Teach your children you don’t do it – even if you can get away with it – just because you know it is not the right thing to do! I’m with you. John
