Attorney Patrick O'Rourke was more than halfway through his closing argument on behalf of the University of Colorado when I finally heard him utter the word "lie" — and it wasn't even in reference to Professor Ward Churchill.Update: You snooze you lose? John Aguilar at the Camera:
He never called Churchill a "liar." He never called Churchill's witnesses "liars." He came to the fight of his professional life on his best behavior, all good manners and high decorum, while his opponent, David Lane, arrived in the equivalent of full combat gear: a bandoleer over each shoulder and a couple of Winchesters cradled in his arms.
Churchill, and his wife Natsu Taylor Saito, entered the courtroom a few minutes ago and are both sitting at the plaintiff's table.I'm with them in spirit.
Saito is sitting in a chair with her arms crossed and Churchill is appears to be dozing in his seat.
