Christmas in May

Ahh, finally. Another article at Inside Higher Ed about Ward Churchill.

My humble .02 - He's done. Now there will be lawsuits, etc., but he's not going to win those, either. His lawyer, however, will insist on taking this thing ever higher, because, well, paycheck.

But that's neither here nor there. The important thing is this: I am positively giddy at the wonders that the comments section will hold!

"Done" may overstate the case. Expect to see Churchill working the campus lecture circuit for all it's worth, raking it in hand-over-fist for years to come.

I was (not very) astonished to learn that Anita Hill, she of the short-and-curlies-in-the-Coke fame, commands $20,000 a pop. Surely a hemi-semi-demi-pseudoindian martyr for academic freedom can do as well.

PfP -

Oh, I don't mean "done" as in "destitute and sad," but hopefully he's out of academe for a while - well, maybe.

Never underestimate the stupidity of search committees, particularly in the fringier portions of the humanities.

It's an offense to the Nutbo-American community.
