Larry Summers, Falling on His Knees and Wearing Sackcloth



Larry Summers is desparately seeking forgiveness for his sinful ways and this time he may get it by paying massive cash indulgences.

Summers has pledged that Harvard University with spend fifty million dollars to set up a special "diversity fund" targeted to hire women and minorities.

Her colleague across the table chimed in to praise Brother Summers.
