An interesting twist in campus politics

According to the LA Times, exiting Harvard University President Lawrence H. Summers received a standing ovation after he walked in and a standing ovation before he left. The people in the audience. Harvard undergraduate students. A row of students with red letters painted on their chests spelled out "Larry."

Who drove Summers out? Radical far-left extremist members of the faculty who were out of touch with the students.

The show of student loyalty has come as a surprise to many faculty members and administrators at Harvard, who grew to loathe Summers during a five-year tenure that brought a raw blast of politics to the 370-year-old institution.
