DMN: Don't rehash stories the Observer did months ago!

Either nobody at the Dallas Morning News reads the Observer and thinks that they're breaking this story first, or they figured enough time had passed and we wouldn't notice that they're printing a story which is essentially a ripoff of the Dallas Observer's which was printed in July! Both stories are about Morgellons Disease, a controversial condition that doctors don't agree on (whether it exists or not, that is). Anyway, here's the Observer's story from July: The Plague, and then the DMN's from today's issue!

The difference is that the DO's is several pages long, whereas the DMN's is a cursory article of not even one page. Guys, that's just bad!

Aw man...that story is a rehash! And not a good one!

Makes you wonder, did the DMN fire so many people that they now have to get their news from other newspapers?

I don't know. Let's write the Observer and ask!

They should of taken the story from your blog - at least then they could claim it as their own.

Hey, don't tell them that! Next thing you know they'll have a news story about people who want to change Columbus Day to American Discovery Day.
