The captain speaks

Harvard President Lawrence Summers appears to have emerged from yesterday’s “emergency” faculty meeting without serious harm: “Harvard is split on Summers.” The Washington Post quotes government professor Susan Pharr commenting on President Summers and sounding remarkably like the Captain talking about the man named Luke in my favorite movie:

“Changing his ways will be very difficult,” she said afterward. “I think people need to step back and digest what’s been said before we know how this will all turn out.”

It also helps if you’ve seen the film.
