The Boston Globe suspended Ron Borges for plagiarism. Ron Borges is the MAIN REASON why I don’t read the Boston Globe sports page. Sometimes, I wonder if he resents the Globe for putting him on the Patriots’ beat. He never has a positive thing to say about the Pats, and I wasn’t the least bit shocked when he was the first (and still the only writer I’ve read) to pan the Adalius Thomas deal. I’ll listen to Peter King on this one.
When I first read of the Borges suspension, I couldn’t wait to see how the Herald would cover the story. As expected, the Herald was ready with plenty of examples of Borges’ alleged copying.
At work, I also handle copy editing duties. I have to fix/correct/rewrite stuff all the time. Seriously, it’s not that difficult to re-word stuff. If a moron like me can do it, I think Borges can take the five minutes to do it as well.
