take someone's literary work and try to pass it off as
your own, is it not plagiarism? True, she may have
mentioned her books at one time or another, but I did
not link the two names as the same person. Some of us
have the same name you know.

proceeds form her books go to the Getty, since that is
where she got some of the ideas anyway.
Just had to say that. C
