Is the St. Pete Times’ Sandra Gadsden cribbing from ILovetheBurg.com?

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

Of the many useless tits-on-a-bull there are at the St. Petersburg Times, few are less useful (or is it more useless?) than Neighborhood Times editor Sandra Gadsden, who I believe regularly cribs — without attribution — from local blogs and websites.

St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster’s effort to attract more sports events sounds like a good idea. But he started off on a sour note by hiring his campaign manager to lead the effort and offering an intemperate defense. “I don’t care if he’s my illegitimate son,” Foster said of former…
