It was in the news yesterday and it is definitely in the news today. Reading about his presidency in today's WSJ article, I learned so much more about him than his unfortunate comment on women in science. Even for that comment, I was not upset about him. He is not the reason for the realitiy. On the contrary, he has become part of the reason that may lead to a change. (Hopefully, a better one). In the WSJ article, it says "in the end, he [Summers] failed to appreciate the cultural differences between the hierarchical structure of the federal government and the more collaborative atmosphere of academia."
