That’s why we love him

From the Daily Camera.
Churchill, who won a wrongful-termination lawsuit against the university last week, said he doesn’t accept the contention that dissatisfaction with his presence on campus should prevent his reinstatement.
“If it would make a bunch of people uncomfortable on the Boulder campus, what’s the argument?” Churchill said. “They violated my rights, therefore to spare them discomfort I should not be restored to what I was unlawfully deprived of? That’s somewhat tenuous.”
For those at CU who can’t stand having him so close, Churchill has an offer:
“If it really makes you that uncomfortable, you’re free to leave,” he said.
. . .
Churchill said, in the end, it’s up to him whether to accept reinstatement if it is awarded.
He would first have to assess whether CU, which he said had “degenerated to a not very glorified vo-tec, a trade school” still met his standards.
