'Lighthouse' Columnist No Beacon of Integrity

Blueprint of Split Rock Lighthouse.Blueprint of Split Rock Lighthouse. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)Anchor Weekly editor Steve Jeffrey has resigned, the Calgary Herald reports, the day after a humor writer allegedly uncovered at least 42 instances in which Jeffrey purportedly committed plagiarism in his local political column, "Lighthouse".

Jeffrey, who initially denied plagiarizing others works while conceding he used other writers for "inspiration," stepped down one day after humorist George Waters claimed Jeffrey merely altered minor details of others' writings in his own column, according to the Herald story.

Not the first time rough Waters brought down a Lighthouse.
