Prof. Carson: I do hope your observation is meant to be ironic. As an alumnus of the GSAS I consider President Summers' forced resignation to be a low point in Harvard's illustrious history and a black eye for the notion that academic freedom includes the obligation to speak the truth as one sees it without truckling to political correctness.
I view it as faculty recapturing their rightful control over the management and administration of a university, even though in this particular case I don't agree with the faculty.I'm not a big fan of the corporate model, which appears to hold that faculty work for the administrators. In my view, it's the other way around.
