I think the problem for academics is that we punish students when 
they borrow without quotation marks or footnotes.

But when Larry does it, we attempt to excuse the borrowings in a 
variety of ways.

Perhaps we should attempt to excuse our students with the same vigor 
as we use to excuse Durrell.
