Cooks Source Update  
Paula Deen was ripped off too and she has a legal department.

Word has spread to the U.K. about Judith Griggs' internet theft.

A discussion on Cooks Source's own Facebook pages is helping readers join together and spot other instances of possible internet theft and plagiarism.

I and others have reported some of these. I got an email back from NPR thanking me.

I am almost feeling sorry for Judith by now--except that her nasty email to one of the people she so casually ripped off prevents me from going too far down that path.

Wow-this is a great lesson on the ability to use the web to get things accomplished!
And really funny, too! Poor little Judith Griggs; if she actually gets paid for what she does, bet she's out of a job. If not, if it's her magazine? Hope she has some sort of liability insurance for this sort of stuff....
