John Walsh of Montana was appointed to his seat in February, and he's preparing to face voters for the first time.

It seems that in a paper Walsh submitted for his master's degree from the U.S. Army War College, long passages were borrowed without attribution. <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2014 NPR.

"What has one person ever done alone?" he asks NPR's Robert Siegel. "We think of Martin Luther King and Sigmund Freud and Warren Buffett and Steve Jobs as these great solo creators, but in fact, if you look into the details of their life, they are enmeshed in relationships all the way through."<p>Take Steve Jobs: "Jobs created Apple Computer with Steve Wozniak," says Shenk.

He's an outright skeptic, especially because the organic label seems to him like a license to raise prices. And also because those products are arriving through supply chains that stretch to far corners of the world.<p>The U.S. imports organic soybeans from China, spices from India, and dried fruits from Turkey.
