Summers' Premiership Collapses in No Confidence Vote

Harvard trustees to form new government

This headline is just a joke, which you'd realize is VERY FUNNY if you knew the mechanics of parliamentary government.

Actually, the Harvard faculty's "vo no co" (vote of no confidence) in University President Larry Summers, cool as it may be, also has a kind of pompous, self-important edge to it.

Why not just say, "Harvard Professors, in Straw Poll, Say Their Boss An Asshole."

Comments:
Isn't that last statement at least somewhat true about any group of professors? (If not any group of workers more generally?)

Or maybe I'm failing to adequately recognize that Richard Russo's Straight Man is actually fiction.
 
I just came across your blog about improvement and wanted to drop you a note telling you how impressed I was with the information you have posted here. I also have a web site about improvement so I know I'm talking about when I say your site is top-notch! Keep up the great work, you are providing a great resource on the Internet here!
 
And on a lighter note than pure louisiana lawyer , check out the funniest trial transcript ever! If it's not serious enough of a topic, well, just pretend it's the Brit's version of louisiana lawyer !
