So Much Plagiarism, So Little Respek

We tried our hand at investigatory journalism a couple weeks back but were flummoxed when both parties, via others, insisted on their absolute innocence or inability to be plagiarized. The Gutter, who we’re still waiting to play to win, picked up on another case, this one a little less close to home but definitely a little more inappropriate. SHoP, who we’ve always considered great contributors to the urban landscape, designed a nice little piece of drinkers’ heaven for the Virgin Atlantic Upperclass lads at JFK’s Terminal 4. All good. All nice. Until Zaha stole it. And no matter how much license for absolute insanity we are happy to give newly relationship-ed people, in this case Zaha’s wedding is no more a good excuse for theft than our imaginary one wasn’t.
