Steve - it's not stealing if we give credit to the source. Actually, we're helping the Charlotte Observer a little bit by posting it on our website and then linking the story back to theirs. In that way, they may get a few extra hits that they wouldn't get otherwise.
Now - if we had pawned it off as our own story - THAT would be stealing. News organizations, especially those out of town and not in direct competition, do it regularly.
Thanks for taking the time to check out our website today!
