DePaul's strange priorities

Hat tip to Marathon Pundit for this one.
Although it's a struggle to find any university recognition of it, Todd Beamer, the passenger on doomed Flight 93 who yelled out the call, "Let's roll," was a DePaul University alumnus.

DePaul paid Ward Churchill, who called the World Trade Center victims "Little Eichmanns," an estimated $5,000 to speak there last fall.

DePaul's complete acknoledgement of Beamer's sacrifice, as far as I know, consisted of his picture being placed in a 2002 DePaul graduation program.

Strange priorities at DePaul.
I'm DePaul Grad School of Biz MBA (79)... what's taken over the place is beyond belief.

Much like my smaller Catholic undergraduate school, DePaul has been heavy into ditching their 'Catholic Conservative' creds. Thus, inviting a dick like Churchill out to prattle about how much the USA sucks takes is _over_ discussing the life/times/actions of a man who was probably a republican racist, bigot, bush voter.

Just sayin'....
