When I first read the article I said to myself. "What the heck is all about? This is considered plagiarism? Where the heck did that come from? These are inoccuous boilerplate examples."

Wikipedia even says on its site: "Wikipedia is free content that anyone can use, edit, and distribute."

And then...the NY Times actually published the article?!!! As a News story??!!!!!! Must've been a slow news day. This isn't even a Tempest in a Teapot. It's more like an earthquake in an ant hole. Or like a cop issuing a traffic ticket for going 29 in a 30 mph zone.

So, today, The NY Times thankfully actually printed the below "Letter to the Editor"

IN DEFENSE OF BIALOSKY

"72 Friends of Literature, in Defense of the Poet Jill Bialosky"
