Weren't these allegations of plagiarism by Mr. Hedges debunked several years 
ago?  If memory serves me it was the person bringing the allegations who was 
found to be a sensation seeker trying to get attention and make a name for 
himself.  Hedges, like virtually every prolific writer will from time to time 
unconsciously write something that he had admired and memorized from some other 
writer having forgotten that it wasn't his own thought.  It was shown beyond a 
reasonable doubt that that is what happened to Hedges.  In other words it was 
conclusively shown that Hedges never intentionally plagiarized anyone.  And, if 
one stops to think for a moment, why would he?  He's a superb writer with 
plenty of original ideas.  This whole issue is a tempest in a tea-pot.  It's 
absurd.
