To my knowledge, prior to January 2009, no Georgia blogger had written extensively about the GPB show "Lawmakers". Then, something strange happened.
January 13, 2009 - The first entry of "Gonzo Lawmakers" appears on Drifting Through The Grift
January 28, 2009 - Peach Pundit's "Pete Randall" posts the first ever "Lawmakers Drinking Game"
Probably just a coincidence.
January 25, 2010 - After a delayed start, "Gonzo Lawmakers" re-appears for its second "season".
January 27, 2010 - "Pete" starts another "Lawmakers" open thread. It regurgitates many of the items noted in the first few entries of Gonzo Lawmakers. Including a notation for the first time that the "reporters" are actually interns.
So. Where is the line between coincidence and creative theft?
