I guess chanting 'Harvard Sucks!' at the
pep rally must have been the last straw

Soon-to-be former Harvard President Lawrence Summers, we hardly knew ye.

As an employee of Harvard I will miss President Summers. He was like a breath of nonPC air in the stuffy hallways of academia. Sure that breath might have at times been a bit stinky but wherever he went there was always a lot of wind.

What I find amusing is that he can make a few misplaced comments and be splattered over the press and forced out of office. Our nations president ruined relations with 90% of the world and insulted the majoriy of world leaders he met in his first term and we reelected him. So I think the moral of the story is that if you're going to be a bad president be SPECTACULARLY BAD. Otherwise you just get to walk away with some fantastic golden parachute salary settlement which is more than most Americans will ever make in their entire lives even if they could work well into a second century of employment.

There is fair amount of schadenfreude in what is the currently hottest topic in the groves of Academe, the topic of President Lawrence www.enterbet.com Summers of Harvard University. Unless you are brain dead, you are aware that Mr. Summers is in deep, deep doodoo for remarks he made concerning women and science, audibly musing as to whether there might be some gender differentiation as regards scientific aptitude. Yes, the musings were voiced in the Sportsbook interrogative mood, and, yes again, the university is the arena in which no cow is sacred, no intellectual hold barred, no question ruled out of order . . . but, still!
