This might be a good way to start the morning. Roger Kimball has a few thoughts on the faculty vote of no confidence in Harvards president:
The Larry Summers tragicomedy continues. In todays episode, we watch as Harvards hapless president is once again humiliated by the faculty of Arts and Sciences, which met yesterday and returned a vote of no confidence by a margin of 218 to 185, with 18 abstentions.
Its a bit like one of those Warner Brothers cartoons in which some pathetic character--Elmer Fudd comes to mind--goes after the waskily wabbit only to be outtwitted or at least outmaneuvered by the time the commercial break rolls around. Same thing happens in every episode, but the very predictability of the scenario adds to the comedy of the consummation. Why arent the girls more widely represented at the highest levels of science and mathematics? Why?
