I hope it isn't all like this 

Loyal reader jw sends along a report that Rocky Ward Churchill has sent a defense to the committee investigating him for scholarly misconduct. Says his lawyer David Lane
'He thinks it would be equally offensive for them (the faculty committee) to certify him as an Indian, as it would be to say he's not an Indian - but he showed conclusive proof to say he is Native American; but he is telling them it's none of their business. And I don't see it as constitutionally their place, to prove his pedigree.'
Did you follow this? Hope the committee can: It has until June 21 to report its findings.
