Cheer up, those of you who are closing in on “senior citizen” status: You have some perks.

“Found” on the internet? This is nothing more than blagant plagiarism! There is absolutely no credit given to the original author. This type of behavior should not be condoned by The Forum – this “article” should be removed immediately and Lind should be reprimanded!

Besides the plagiarism, this type of content belongs in a crappy chain email sent by a grandmother in the 90’s, not the Forum.

HEY! The chain email I sent out in the 90s, to women friends, began something like this: send your husband to the name at the top of the list…. if no woman breaks the chain in just a few weeks you should have several thousands of new husbands to chose from…
Now THAT was funny.

This really is plagiarism. I can’t believe that they didn’t even credit the original author!

Geez, did you three all wet the bed last night? Aren’t there more things to worry about than a features writer putting something in his column that has been around the block a million times by now? He said it came from the internet, if you guys are so cognizant how about you tell us the original writer.

“marty”, I was merely suggesting that a writer for the Forum have some integrity and originality. I believe that would have been covered in one of their ethics classes.
The heck do ya mean Merty? I think we better stay on topic there or I’ll have ta just report ya.
I just wonder why the sun didn’t publish real news instead of chain stuff. I get enough of that in my work emails don’t ya know.

Some of us older folks getting up there enjoy a little humor now and then, something to talk about on the way to church meetings, you know.

I think that even older people on their way to church meetings know that they credit Jesus P. Christ with writing the Bible. If the Forum published a Bible verse like 1 Corinthians 23:3 “The fruits of our labor shall be plentiful bloodshed. Woman and man together will procreate in the face of struggle and sin for the good of mankind, despite the desire of the unwilling.” Do you think that the Forum should just publish that and not give credit because they “found it”?

This should have been caught by the editorial staff before it ever made print. I agree with Michael.
