Plagiarism in Texas: wikipedia masquerading as de Tocqueville?

Plagiarism charges arise in interesting contexts and can involve tortured inquiries. One of the more interesting quests of 2010 involves a charge made by Dr. Michael Soto arising in the area of the Texas State Board of Education [SBOE]. The queblog details the twists and turns, but it leads to plagiarism of wikipedia, and false attribution to de Tocqueville.

The story includes mention of Bryan, Texas, one of two news stories on April 28 about Bryan (the other relating to Dan Pastorini, the guy who greased the skids for Jim Plunkett to win a SuperBowl.)
