The only thing worse than useless fluff pieces on patch are articles that are blatantly plagiarized from other patch sites. http://southeast.patch.com/articles/liquor-store-larceny-leads-to-arrest-in-southeast Could it really be true that in this relatively large city there's no news to report on, so we have to nab headlines from nearby towns? I'd argue there's plenty of news to report on in Danbury, but Mr. Langlois just isn't getting it done. At least his copy+paste function works. Mr. Langlois, how do you justify putting your name on an article that you didn't write a single word of?

Observer, two things. First, read the first paragraph under the headline, where I say where this brief came from. Two: get a life.
