    Larry Summers


    Wasn't the president of Harvard Larry Summers?

    If so, he never even implied that women have less talent in the hard sciences; what he did say was that in an investigation as to why women weren't proportionately represented in the sciences and math, that the investigation also look into innate ability.

    Having worked for an eccentric economist for many years, I recognized Summers's comment as merely insuring that all possible causes be investigated.
