Kaavya Viswanathan ::: More Teflon than Ronald Reagan!

To all you bloggers worried about others helping themselves to your work, read this ::: Stuck in an awful dead-end job? Try becoming embroiled in a plagiarism scandal! It worked for famous Harvard plagiarist Kaavya Viswanathan. She just got a sweet summer job at one of the most prominent law firms in the country.
Former US President Ronald Reagan was often referred to as "The Teflon President" - able to get into politically 'dirty' areas but emerge with his reputation and popularity unscathed and with no 'mud' sticking.
Viswanathan (one of the disgraced) will be spending the summer in the NYC office of Sullivan & Cromwell. She’s due to arrive at 125 Broad Street later this month.

Perhaps the more important lesson here is this ::: Viswanthan, like Eliot Spitzer, was shot down in the public eye but managed to land on her feet — albeit the landing was a rough one. She not only hit the ground running but picked up a job many law students would (literally) kill for. It just goes to show that it takes a lot, far more than most people realize, to sink someone’s career or ruin their life. YOu just gotta get up, dust yourself off, and keep going!

Having typed that, I wonder how Lawrence Taylor will make out? The Fitness Diva weighs in on the LT situation.

Plagiarization is the sincerest form of flattery, so long as you don't get caught. Ask Kaavya. And there are MORE of her ilk!
