I didn't follow it very closely, but I think the Harvard president deserves
to be in a little trouble.  Because even if he is right, he is wrong. The
broad statistics don't really matter, I don't think. It certainly wouldn't
justify making a math class a locker room. So it soen't get us anywhere. 

The statistics I am pretty sure of is that I have better math aptitude than
2 of my 3 sisters.  What does that tell us?

And of the two sisters who I consider myself to have better math aptitude  -
one outscored me the last time we went bowling.  That was 35 years ago.  And
it's no accident it's the last time we went bowling ;).
