As i was in the case of the disgusting Ward Churchill, I am troubled by legislators atteempting to fire a professor with unpopular views.

Prove wrongdoing on this clowns part (as ws done with Churchill) and I will support firing him.

I'm confused. You mean the government didn't orchestrate 9/11?

Ok, ok, they didn't, but they sure seem to use the incident to justify everything they do.

How about this; let him teach but prohibit him from giving that "one perspective".

Not to be a broken record, but this all goes back to the fact that the very notion of "objective truth" has been debased by various groups (both extreme left and extreme right) for years.

Happen to think that Bush took the "there is no truth - only different political perspectives" argument to a new level giving us the brave new academic world of "creation science" and "teach the 9/11 controversy" nonsense.

Who on the extreme right denies absolute truth? (Seriously, I'm asking.) I'm not aware of anyone, but maybe I just haven't come across them.
