The Times of London has published an article about the discoveries, concerning the Pledge of Allegiance, by Barry Popik and myself.  The headline reads: "America's Pledging Allegiance to the Words of a Plagiarist."  As one can tell from the headline, the Times is taking a sharper (and, I believe, more accurate) tack on this story than the New York Times, which did not come out and say that Francis Bellamy was a plagiarist.

The Times of London piece is behind a paywall, but people who are interested can email me at fred.shapiro at yale.edu, and I will send a scan of this piece.
