Apologies of Famous Plagiarists

Wouldn’t it be awesome if Rand Paul plagiarized an apology for his plagiarism?

“I do not know any good way to apologize for this, nor the way to explain to you how my respect for your writing became something so lacking in respect.”

Jacob Epstein to Martin Amis
(http://www.nytimes.com/books/98/02/01/home/amis-epstein.html)

“I made a terrible mistake. It is a serious lapse and one that is entirely my fault. I apologize unreservedly…”

Fareed Zakaria to Jill Lepore

“I am distressed to discover that some of the excellent and valuable sources were not properly cited, and I want to express my sincere apologies.”

Jane Goodall to primates everywhere
