Well rumors were flying around all morning. Then we heard something on the radio. Now sitting down at my laptop this afternoon to check my email ... this:
From: Lawrence Summers [email@example.com]I guess that's the end of the Summers Saga.

Dear Members of the Harvard Community,
I write to let you know that, after considerable reflection, I have
notified the Harvard Corporation that I will resign as President of the
University as of June 30, 2006. I will always be grateful for the
opportunity to have served Harvard in this role, and I will treasure the
continuing friendship and support of so many exceptional colleagues and students
Below are links to my letter to the community, as well as a letter from the
members of the Corporation and a related news release.
