Thornton again, also on Ward's smallpox allegations: "I think it's just out-and-out fabrication."It's going to be like Christmas every day (through Thursday).

Anybody feel sorry for him yet?
As hoped, people stomp all over Ward Churchill in part 2 of the Rocky's investigation today, and it's drawing blood. The Plie-ing Pirate has lots o' links, and changes his toe shoes for Doc Martens to get in a few kicks himself, so I'll just pull a few of my favorite quotes from the Rocky:
Russell Thornton, professor of anthropology at UCLA, Cherokee Indian, and an expert on Indian population statistics, on Ward's academic research skillz: "He's a terrible scholar." Ward, on Thomas Brown, an associate professor of sociology at Lamar University in Texas who refutes Ward's repeated claim that the U.S. Army gave Mandan Indians blankets infected with smallpox: "a punk."
