I'm terrible at jumping on "hot topics". I try to not watch the news any more than I have to (which is just enough to understand the Daily Show). I also like to take plenty of time to think about all the sides of any given issue. That said...
Ward Churchill is an idiot. Perhaps a disgrace. But why did Jerry Falwell get away with the same crap? Sure, he apologized. Did he loose his job? Is he being destroyed for having an opinion? I find his comments just as, if not more, offensive than Ward's.
