CU's College Republicans group protests outside Churchill's office building
Ten members of the College Republicans at the University of Colorado are standing outside professor Ward Churchills office today with a banner listing all those killed on 9/11.Update: College Republicans confront Churchill, who takes a swat at the videocamera recording the event. According to Ian VanBuskirk, chairman of the group, an "Indian friend" of Churchill's came out of the CU building to put a hex (in presumably some Indian language) on the College Repubs. VanBuskirk told KHOW's Caplis & Silverman today that Churchill told him that he would circle the names of the innocent when VanBuskirk circled the names of the dead (presumably Iraqi) children. Video of the swat Churchill takes at the videocamera appeared on Fox31 (Denver).
The students want Churchill to circle with a black marker the names of those who deserved to die in the terrorist attack. Churchill has not yet responded.
VanBuskirk vows to return next Wednesday (the day of the week that Churchill teaches his one class of the Fall session).
Quandary of the Day: Does this mark the end of Churchill's 15 minutes of fame, or the beginning of his second 15 minutes of fame? CU's favorite professor makes it into a restaurant review
Way OT: Churchill may not have visited tyrant Hugo Chavez in Venezuela recently (a possibility we pondered back in October), but dignitaries for the People's Republic of Massachusetts certainly have (free registration may be required)
