plagiarism and plagiarists

If it's the time of the semester when you're talking to your students about plagiarism, you might want to direct them to an interesting website--http://www.famousplagiarists.com.   There's even a "Plagiary's Hall of Shame" page. 

While you may disagree with who's on it, the greater point is that allegations of (and proven) plagiarism can attach to a person and persist for the rest of a career.

Current VP nominee Joseph Biden is even used as an example on "The Nuts and Bolts of College Writing" page on plagiarism. (This is a great online companion site to Michael Harvey's book of the same name.)
