Justice delayed 

is still tasty: Ward Churchill has hit the bricks.
The University of Colorado Board of Regents voted to terminate controversial professor Ward Churchill on Tuesday evening.

The Board of Regents passed a motion to accept the recommendation from CU President Hank Brown to fire Churchill from his position in the Ethnic Studies department.

The measure passed with an 8 to 1 vote. The vote was made just after 5:30 p.m. and Cindy Carlisle was the dissenting vote.

Immediately after the decision was announced people in the crowd booed and some swore at the board members.

Churchill and his supporters then participated in a Native American ceremony outside of the building.
There's coverage of the event at Drunkablog and Pirate Ballerina. (Is Jim done blogging now?) Congrats to those two bloggers for providing continuous coverage.

I fully expect some sympathy event on our campus. I'll let you know if and when.
