Now available at Bass Pro Shops: The Larry Summers lure
Posted by Thomas Mitchell [Editor of the Las Vegas Review Journal]
I baited the hook and dropped it in the water. It was swallowed hook, line and sinker, rod and reel, up to the elbow, in a piranha-like feeding frenzy. [. . .] They bit on the Larry Summers lure.
Before Larry Summers was an adviser to the president, he was the president of Harvard University, until one day he committed a cardinal sin. He offered an off-the-cuff conjecture that the reason women might be underrepresented in math and science at elite universities just might be because there is an “innate” difference between men and women. Whether there was even a grain of statistical, scientific or logical evidence to support such a statement was irrelevant.
(Emphasis supplied.) Heh. Yep, whether the then Harvard President's statements about why women were underrepresented in math and science fields was complete nonsense is irrelevant. This clown Mitchell deserves a show on Fox (Beck could not have done it better.) For his next column, I suggest he use the William Bennett lure. I'm sure he will crack himself up. My gawd, the man is the editor of a daily newspaper. What a disgrace.
Speaking for me only
