More plagiarism at Harvard?

The Boston Herald reports that the Harvard Crimson dropped an editorial cartoonist Oct. 30, saying two of her drawings mirrored previously published cartoons.

Although the recent separate episode with Victoria Illyinsky was mentioned, the article did not talk about the Laurence Tribe incident.

Meanwhile, the Yale Daily News (article by Kanya Balakrishna and William Schmidt) reports:

Jill Cutler, the secretary of Yale's Executive Committee, said she thinks Yale's plagiarism problem is comparable to that faced by most other universities. According to the most recent available ExComm Chair's Report, from the 2004-2005 academic year, the committee heard 30 cases of cheating and plagiarism that resulted in 19 punishments ranging in seriousness from reprimands to a withheld degree. Cutler said Yale students are not adequately informed about the concept of academic honesty.
