A report in today's New York Times tells about the suspension of a clergyman for plagiarism. Robert Siegel talks with the Rev. Claudia A. Highbaugh, chaplain and lecturer at Harvard Divinity School, who teaches "Introduction to Preaching." Highbaugh says there has been a time-honored tradition for preachers to "borrow" from one another, and she describes how she teaches her own students to avoid the pitfalls of plagiarism.
