The final line in the article happens to be a great quote from Fred.

(If you have access to the Newsbank's "Access World News" aggregation, the article can be found there.)


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.
