One of my daughters has recently acquired a DVD of The Man of the House, staring Tommy Lee Jones as Texas Ranger Roland Sharp. This is very light entertainment but there is there a wonderful one liner from the main character which will surely appeal to all university teachers, the more so if they have had to deal with plagiarism.

... and yes! The internet does make plagiarism easier ... to detect!

It is so much easier to uncover plagiarists who lift stuff from the internet than from a book!

Thank you Google!

The quotation from the character is :

"Plagiarism is an academic crime. It is punishable by academic death."
