Churchill: I might return

In a rehash of the Ward Churchill firing for the new school year, CU's Campus Press quotes the ex-professor:
Churchill had some advice for CU students and challenged them to bring him to campus as a speaker or for a public debate.

"I would be more than willing to have a public debate with David Horowitz or even Hank Brown," Churchill said. "Students should be aware of the facts. And they should not rely on only the facts given to them by Hank Brown."

If the lawsuit's outcome would allow his reinstatement as a professor at CU, Churchill said he might come back to work.

"I would consider and feel that I am entitled to work at the university again," he said.
The paper also asked some students what they thought of the case. Best response: "From what I've been told it seems like he deserved to be fired, but I also think Churchill experienced a bad run of luck."

Update: Pirate Ballerina links to the World Socialist Web Site, which craps on about Ward in the usual manner.
