Drum & Cannon's Jack Ott in Rocky Mountain News

The Rocky Mountain News has been running a series on Ward Churchill's foibles and addresses the alleged Indian heritage Churchill's been claiming as his claim to authority for his career. You've read about this before here on these pages and I introduced many of you to Jack Ott of The Drum and Cannon. Jack has done some great work on the genealogical story behind Churchill's claims. His work is featured prominently in the story and finally gives a wider audience to the irrefutable evidence that Churchill's nowhere near the 1/16 (or 3/16) Indian he's been claiming to be. Congrats on the newpaper mention, Jack!
