Follow-up on HURL job ad 

The New Criterion picks up the job description at St. Cloud State's Department of the 3.7 GPA, as linked to on Friday, and connects this to Ward Churchill.
The point to bear in mind, however, is that Ward Chruchill is not an aberration: he represents what has become the academic mainstream. Ditto the Kirkland Project. Start scratching the surface of your local college or university. What will you find? You'll find things like this advertisement for a job as--God helps us--an "Assistant Professor of Human Relations & Multicultural Education" at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota. Really, you can't make this stuff up.
