    Every day, children watch adults get away with things much worse than stealing. Bush's administration is chock full of liars and thieves, and our streets are crawling with violent thugs.

    Small wonder children think it's okay to steal someone else's hard work.

    One wonders if there's some kind constitutional takings issue when a student is forced to submit a copy of their paper (free of charge) to a for-profit website.

    When I did my senior project, it had to incorporate an activity (job shadowing or the like) and an oral presentation as well as the essay. Have those requirements now been removed?

    Correction: One of the slogans we had on a number of plagiarism prevention promotional items is "Cite when you write," not "Cite when you're right."
    Comments: This was a campus-wide collaborative initiative, and members of the Academic Senate's Plagiarism Prevention Ad Hoc Committee were the engineers of Delta's first Campus-wide Plagiarism Prevention Awareness Week. Thank you for sharing our success and extending awareness of plagiarism prevention to our community.

    You don't think many students will do what it takes to get an A without having to use their own minds?
