Remember Ward Churchill?

Colorado Professor Responds to Criticism
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A University of Colorado professor who likened some Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi war criminal fired back Wednesday at a panel that recommended he be suspended over plagiarism accusations. In a six-page response that he released to reporters, the professor, Ward L. Churchill, denied some accusations and in other cases said the panel had used "the slightest of pretexts to conclude that I engaged in significant research misconduct." Mr. Churchill, an ethnic studies professor, also said the university violated his rights by announcing the findings. A university spokesman, Barrie Hartman, disputed that. "He's the one who's made the case public," Mr. Hartman said.

As my Roman ancestors used to say, "Dementis in minimis, dementis in omnibus."

And I'll bet even Ralph can figure that one out. :wink:

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

W. Churchill's first act of plagiarism was to represent himself as what he is not....a Cherokee indian.

Precisely. I'm proud of you.
