    Why not suspend them all?
    That's the question raised by the Huffington Post's decision this week to "indefinitely suspend" a young writer, Amy Lee, for cribbing liberally from an AdAge column.
    The move has sparked widespread criticism that founder Arianna Huffington is seeking a scapegoat for a controversial practice that her site has long condoned -- repackaging others' work as its own.

    The political toons have the artist's name on them. I'm just lucky to find toons that pass as 10,000 words. But if you'd rather I cut and paste the 10,000 words from an article on the same subject I'll do it just to "peas" youse !!

    Again, I remind all that Upstate is 11.? post a day........i'm 7.?.
