Someone Plagiarize To Writing Of Me

Kareem Zarwi, manager and beverage director of Au Pied de Cochon recently sent a very gracious email in which he thanked me for the "clear assessment" of Pied in the New Times review. But the real reason he was writing was to let me know that he had "come across a 'review' quite similar to the one that you wrote". And sure enough, the article by "Black and White" for a site called Associated Content is plagiarism in black and white -- except the words are amended in order to read as though English is the writers' second language. Which I think is an interesting twist that deserves its' own name: Pidgin Plagiarism.
