I don't dispute that there are a couple of examples of apparent
lifting. Though when the article refers to a single sentence that is
"almost verbatim", are you really certain that one couldn't scour your
writings and find a single sentence that is "almost verbatim" when compared
to something someone once wrote before?
My claim is not to exonerate Tribe, it is to suggest that the article was
unfair to the point of inaccuracy and to suggest that Tribe should not be
singled out as a transgressor, as I would wager that you could find
something similar in a huge number of books.
