Former University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill won't be returning to the classroom anytime soon after losing his appeal Wednesday to get his job back.
A Connecticut man who held his ex-wife hostage for hours and then refused to leave their burning home has been taken away in an ambulance.
BOULDER, Colo.— University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, who gained international notoriety for comparing the September 11 victims to Nazis, was fired yesterday for academic misconduct.
Mr. Churchill wrote an essay after the 2001 terrorist attacks calling the World Trade Center victims "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi leader who orchestrated the Holocaust.
Firing Mr. Churchill was necessary to protect the university's reputation for research integrity, he said, which had suffered in the wake of disclosures surrounding the flamboyant, long-haired, self-professed American Indian who became a national symbol of academic outrageousness, sparking a new round of criticism over tenured radicals and renewing calls for greater intellectual diversity on campus.
