"America has become far too casual about plagiarism," says columnist and humorist Florence King . "Somebody has got to do something about it and it might as well be me." Why is the columnist for The American Enterprise and the author of 10 books suddenly on a mission to end plagiarism in America?

It seems that King was reviewing two of Fort Worth Star-Telegram syndicated columnist Molly Ivins ' books for her "Authors" column when she found passages that included, without attribution, some of her own language and imagery.

Ivins, who uses adjectives like "reprehensible" and "inexcusable" to describe her actions, acknowledges a moral obligation to apologize and personally sent King a letter. "At first I got real defensive, and thought to myself, 'God, I've been quoting that damn woman for years!' " says the notoriously unreserved Ivins. "Then the next morning I looked at the piece real carefully and said, 'Oh shit!' "

Ivins says the incident wounded her vanity as much as anything else. "At first I was so depressed...I thought I didn't deserve to live," she says. True to form, she then snaps back, "But King's column [with the plagiarism accusations] was so nasty in tone that frankly I felt better after reading it."

Paul Harral , editorial director at the Star-Telegram, maintains that the episode was thoroughly investigated at the paper. Ultimately, he says, Ivins' editors concluded that she did not intend to steal King's words and that the incident did not merit disciplinary action. Ivins says they "may have been overly generous" in their decision, but insists that the Star-Telegram takes plagiarism "extremely seriously." King disagrees. "The Fort Worth gang is stonewalling," she says. "I think they ought to own up, instead of all this transparent blather about 'sloppy writing' and 'careless attribution.' "



If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
