Ethics, people, ethics!

I'm a few days late on this one, but yet another journalist -- at a paper that hasn't been immune to this sort of things (Jack Kelley, etc.) -- has lost his job at a big paper for doing something they warn you against vigorously in J-school. This time, it's Tom Squitieri for lifting unattributed quotes.

A bonus for reading Kit Seelye's NYT article linked above: There's a quotation (properly obtained, I imagine) from ethics guru Gene Foreman of Pennsylvania State University!
