Churchill At His Finest?

From the Denver Post, the photo, and the story of Churchill and his adoring fans.
Boulder - Met by wild applause Tuesday night from hundreds of supporters, controversial University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill strongly attacked Gov. Bill Owens and the CU Board of Regents and said he would never back down from his comparison of some 9/11 victims to Nazi Adolf Eichmann.

Looking out on the mass of adoring supporters, with hundreds more listening outside in the cold, Churchill said loudly, "Bill Owens, do you get it now?"

"I do not work for the taxpayers of the state of Colorado. I do not work for Bill Owens. I work for you," he told the CU audience.

It concludes...
On Tuesday night, Churchill again emphasized that he was not blaming everyone in the towers for U.S. policies.

"No I did not call a bunch of food service workers, janitors, children, firefighters and random passers-by little Eichmanns," he said. "The reference is to a technical core of empire - the technicians of empire ... obviously I was not talking about these people."

The Rocky Mountain News coverage is here. And for a little more local news, how about the quarantine of a Frontier flight from Philadelphia. A sick passenger, or as the local CBS affiliate reported this evening, a passenger with a "rash", caused the plane to be held in quarantine while medics attempted to determine the cause and severity of the illness. The passenger is apparently in the hospital and all other passengers where released.
