On the recognition of voice
One of the surest ways to catch a plagiarist is the recognition that a passage doesn’t match the voice with which I’ve become acquainted. It may be because I read a lot of student writing or just that I’m an abnormally sensitive reader, but the persistence of voice is a plain fact of grading. Yet few students believe it. They should. To wit:
A young Theodore J. Kaczynski learned from his mother that “you can’t eat your cake and have it too” was the correct way to say [the idiom]. When Kaczynski later penned an anarchist manifesto in the guise of the Unabomber, the appearance of that particular turn of phrase helped F.B.I. analysts, working with Kaczynski’s brother David, identify who the author was and bring him to justice for his mail-bombing spree.
Exactly. And pertinent to what I’m doing right now.

This song is inspired by a good man and his tune
Thinking good of others sing ‘Amazing Grace’ to you

As long as you know
Happy Lent, everyone!?
