OTIT: Synchronicity

Spooky. After I cited Ward Churchill in my previous post about Boulder's "hate speech" regulation, I find this article on the front page of the Denver Post. Seems Mr. Churchill is a liar, a plagiarist and a jerk, and his academic misconduct might well cost him his job.

Who knew?

Oh yeah, wait. Anybody paying even the slightest bit of attention.

For a heavy, heavy, dose of irony, consider this:
University administrators determined free-speech rights prevented Churchill from being punished for the essay, but regents voted in February 2005 to review Churchill's work.
The University of Colorado is in Boulder-- the place that is thinking about restricting free speech if it is "hateful."
