Artist Matt Bors alerts us to a case of cartooning plagiarism:

This isn’t [accused plagiarizer David] Simpson’s first go-round at the light box. He was fired from his previous cartooning gig at Tulsa World in 2005 for redrawing a Bob Englehart cartoon. His excuse that time was claiming he found an unsigned version of the Englehart cartoon in his files, thought it was his from a while back, and redrew it for the World. Follow that?
