    The controversy actually erupted in late January when students at Hamilton College in -- of all places -- Clinton, New York, protested a scheduled appearance by Churchill based upon assertions he had made in an essay entitled "Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens."

    The recent controversy over the writings of Ward Churchill, radical activist, faux Indian, and tenured professor of ethnic studies at the University of Colorado, raises a number of serious academic issues — which, let me underscore, does not mean that Churchill himself is in any way serious. On the contrary, Churchill is as unserious as anyone ever paid to stand in front of a classroom, an intellectual featherweight whose ideas are less politically scandalous than buffoonishly wrongheaded.
