They All Laughed at Christopher Columbus!

...But ho, ho, ho! Who's got the last laugh now?

Picture credit and a short victory jig!

According to ZNet, Professor Ward Churchill's final dismissal hearing at CU Boulder appears to be over.

ZNet is talking smack, but I suspect that Churchill is about to go down in flames:

Dismissal hearings for University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill were held this past week. Ward Churchill appeared before the Privilege and Tenure Committee with many witnesses speaking in his behalf. The committee will have 30 days to issue its findings to CU president Hank Brown. Brown will weigh the findings and make a recommendation to the Board of Regents.

Opposition to his dismissal is growing on campuses across the country. The firing of Churchill, a tenured professor and former head of the Ethnic Studies Department at UC Boulder, is increasingly being seen by those in academia as an attack on academic freedom, dissent and critical thinking that must be stopped.
