Harvard President Exercises Free Inquiry

Monday’s Boston Globe has a page 1 story on Larry Summers’ lunchtime remarks to an invitation-only seminar on women in science and technology. Poor Larry Summers violated the feminist academic speech codes in remarks that he announced in advance would be both speculative and provocative.

In Massachusetts we no longer display transgressors in the stocks. Instead, our form of social scolding by holders of the Sole Progressive World View is to publish a page 1 story in the Boston Globe (above the fold) with the lede “Summers’ remarks on women draw fire”.

Actually it should have been entitled:
Harvard President Ignores Academic Speech Codes”.

Michelle Malkin has a choice comment.
