From Cookie's Jar: Churchill Chips

Nick Burbules sent along this posting from "Cookie" about Ward Churchill, regarding his NA-ness. I agree with Nick that Cookie's site is lively and interesting.

I find identity politics oddly amusing, though I don't think I have the same high stakes as some do in such. I am predominantly Norwegian and Italian, with a bit of German Amish thrown in way back. Aside from attending a local "Syttende Mai" celebration, where we all laugh ironically about the latest "achievements" of Norwegians, I don't find much of compelling interest in my heritage. My wife quips that the Norse/Italian mix is a bit unstable, meaning that I brood but shout a lot. :-)
