Harvard Lays an Egg

Although I liked my headline last Wednesday better, "Harvard Loses Its Head." The Weekly Standard article found here is an excellent contribution. I believe that the Harvard Corporation forcing President Larry Summer to resign because of faculty protests but over the objections of the undergraduates is a watershed moment for American universitydom. Why am I excited about this event? The faculty is approaching retirement. The students are going to become faculty. As Dick Vitale might say, "We're winnin' baby."
