Confirming that Indian Studies might not be inhabited by a bevy of sagacious types, Yellow Bird left bird droppings all over the place yesterday, which he executed with remarkable brevity:
For the final question CU attorney Patrick O'Rourke asked indigenous studies professor Michael Yellow Bird during his re-cross Wednesday morning, he pulled up [sic] a transcript of previous testimony the professor had given to CU's Privilege & Tenure Committee and asked him if he had made the statement that "fabricated, made-up accounts promote the truth".
With a slight pause, Yellow Bird said yes.
From the ongoing reporting of the Ward Churchill court case in Denver, c/o Drunka.
Our cynosure for the duration of the case, John.G.M also offers some personal musings and panoramic insights to the witnessing of the law in action:
"About Courtroom Six: It sux. I'm a lithe young prole, but half an hour sitting on those benches and I'm ready for a walker (which I steal from the 74-year-old Chutch supporter just behind me every day at lunchtime. "Hey, you young hegemonist!" he yells. It's hilarious).
The room's acoustics are horrible, and the sound system (which I believe the lawyers supply themselves) is rinky beyond dink. There are cigarette burns in the floor. How long's it been since smoking was allowed in courtrooms?"
