Author John Green commenting on the mis-attribution of
"I'm in love with cities I've never been to and people I've never met."

    I suppose instead of blindly assuming I'd written something the Internet
    said I wrote I should have done some research.  But, you know, how
    many of us have failed to fact check something on the Internet? ...
    I immediately downloaded a pirated copy of my own novel. I hit CTRL-F, I
    searched, sure enough not there.

His manner of checking for the quote is especially good.

Karma is a bitch. Unless you can't say "bitch" in the Washington Post, 
in which case karma is, uh, a fickle strumpet or something.
