CU President resigns


The president of the University of Colorado has resigned, in the wake of the Ward Churchill scandal which has tarnished that institution's reputation.

"It appears to me it is in the University's best interest that I remove the issue of my future from the debate so that nothing inhibits CU's ability to successfully create the bright future it so deserves. Therefore, I intend to resign my position as President of the University of Colorado effective June 30, 2005 or whenever the Board names a successor."

Meanwhile, David Harsanyi of the Denver Post tells the story of CU professor Phil Mitchell, who, despite awards as an excellent teacher and extremely positive feedback from his students, is losing his job after 20 years. By sheer coincidence, he is an evangelical Christian and has even quoted Thomas Sowell.

An outrage.
