the new delhi belly?

I ran across a pirate blog called "the new delhibelly" today. I don't know what to say. It would be hypocritical for a journalist to get too stroppy about plagiarism, or whatever name copying is. And even when I was a part-time college professor I was known to cut some slack.

I guess I'll just take it as flattery, and also a reminder that I should keep posting here, even though my "day job" now seems to suck out all my creative energy.

I dont know much about the other blog, haven't looked at it yet. But isn't it a bit presumptous of you to imply that you somehow have some rights over "delhi belly"?

At best you were the first blog-squatter to repurpose the term as a blog-title, no? :)

Yep. That was the tone I was trying to strike. I thought it was funny somebody loved the name so much they were willing to be the second one to pile on.
