Last night had Harvard profs giving 10 minute speeches on "big ideas." And this happened: "Harvard Kennedy School Lecturer Timothy P. McCarthy, who hinted that his days at Harvard might be numbered during his 10-minute presentation, discussed the future of protest-an area in which 'teabaggers and terrorists and other terrible people might have gotten a head start.'" You betcha yer days are numbered, babe, when that Sarah Palin comes on over to Cambridge! Still, we're on his team-he went on to trash Larry Summers, wondering why the guy who presided over Harvard's endowment disaster is helping to fix the federal government's own financial crisis. That is indeed the big mystery of our age!
