Fast-forwarding to the 8th of April

Well, this lawsuit went nowhere in a hurry. If you recall, Dan Brown, the only man who knows less about Opus Dei than I do, was sued for plagiarism by a couple of fellows who claimed he stole their "architecture" for his Da Vinci Code. (Don't ask me; I'm just repeating what the complaint said.) This morning's Times reports that Dan prevailed. You can read it here. Dan didn't steal all that stuff about St Mary Magdalene's marriage and the Holy Grail and whatnot. He made it up himself. So there. Vindication. Uh, I guess.
