Re: Alegeo Plagiarism
       Well the below comments by Gregory Tillet 
in Theos-Talk Digest 2593 are very interesting 
and Important.  Here I was giving credit to Algeo 
for some admirable research and comments, and 
actually he is just directly using Cooper's own 
writing - under his own name as Editor.  WOW!  
Well, this is LOW!  Why? - because no doubt he 
couldn't LEGALLY use Cooper's writing, so he did 
it ILLEGALLY, or unethically, without crediting Cooper.
My! My! My!  How much of this is Cooper's and 
how much Algeo??
