KATRINA: Without Attribution

Mark Steyn, in a September 6 column in London's Daily Telegraph:

I say that in the spirit of the Mayor of New Orleans, Ray Nagin, the Anti-Giuliani, a Mayor Culpa who always knows where to point the finger.

John Fund, writing in today's OpinionJournal Political Diary (a subscriber-only email service):

Mayor Ray Nagin of New Orleans has become an anti-Giuliani, a walking Mayor Culpa who wants to finger everyone but himself for his city's poor handling of its evacuation, which most infamously left 20,000 people at the city's Superdome without adequate food or security.

I think Steyn is owed a credit for that line, no?

UPDATE: Fund emails to tell me that he picked up the line from a friend who emailed from Louisiana, not knowing that Steyn had coined it.

Oops. I guess you could say Fund pulled a Biden.
