Kinko's, A Better Way to Forge?

--Kinko's may indeed be the better way to office, but is it also the better way to forge? Matt Drudge has the following text up on his site, accompanied with the requisite siren:

"CBS Guard Documents Traced to Texas Kinko's...

"WASH POST: Documents allegedly written by deceased officer that raised questions about Bush's service with Texas National Guard bore markings showing they had been faxed to CBS News from a Kinko's copy shop in Abilene, Texas... Developing..."

Abilene is about 20 miles away from Baird, Texas, the home of Bill Burkett, a former Texas National Guard member whom Newsweek magazine reported may have been CBS's source. Burkett is known to have a grudge against George W. Bush, the former governor of his state.

CBS has confirmed that the original producer of its Sept. 8 piece, Mary Mapes, was dispatched to central Texas to interview Burkett, who has said that Bush "would do anything to be 'king' of America."
