After two days, the TDS "Unfire Ward Churchill" petition has 191 signers, but still only 37 of David Horowitz' "Dangerous Professors" have joined the gang. It seems that with the exception of DU itself (24 signatories), the farther away from Denver a university is, the more likely its faculty are to sign up. What's at least as interesting is the conspicuous absence of some other notable Denver names on the list, names like George Tinker (Iliff School of Theology) and Glenn Morris (
DUCU-Denver) and Emma Perez (CU), not to mention Churchill coprophage Tom Mayer (CU). We're sure they'll get around to it soon.
Apropos to virtually nothing, we found this undated plea on this website's guestbook log:
Jacqueline LaskyUpdate: Taking a suggestion from Snapple (yes, we're sometimes that foolish) we googled "jacqueline lasky." From this CV we found in our e-meanderings, it appears that Jacqueline Lasky is now Jacqueline B. Palmer-Lasky, doctoral candidate at the University of Hawaii-Manoa, and if that's true, then we surmise that the above-quoted guestbook entry is from around 1995 or 1996, when Lasky was working on her bachelor's degree in Political Science at CU. A quick review of the titles of her published papers suggests strongly (albeit sadly) that the comprachicos have completed their job on Ms. Palmer-Lasky, and that one may read her work without fear of encountering actual scholarship. BTW: we learn from this slide presentation on the Presidency (taken from a 2002 class Lasky taught) that "80% of the laws originate from the Executive." We did not know that.
currently in Colorado, orignially from Kailua, HI
I am writing my senior political science honors thesis on the Hawaiian Sovereignty Movement. I need as much infor- mation as possible. My advisors are Glen Morris and Ward Churchill, both were involved in the People's Tribunal and are currently in Colorado. Please send me anything and everything that is relavent, both current and historical. I will be back in Hawaii in December/January and would be interested in interviewing people for my honors thesis. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!
