Best. Snarky. Headline. EVAR.

Here's the Calcutta Telegraph on the situation surrounding Kaavya Viswanathan, the Indian-American Harvard student who had her big first novel pulled amidst charges of plagiarism.

Would I ever have read this? Doubt it. But I love a good pun, so I wished that I had thought of this Publishers Weekly headline first:

Kaavyat Emptor?

I love that. Maybe I should just steal it and take credit for it anyway. (Note: I have had daydreams about what would need to happen for an incarnation of the SALT Treaty to become prominent again, and furthermore for Sen. Trent Lott's wife to be an avid supporter. Why? "Lott's Wife: Pillar of Salt.")

Meanwhile, SSMW wishes someone would plagiarize her.
