There is a lot to like about Larry Summers –but I fear he must resign. (See my poem, “Transparency Transfigures” in today’s NYTimes –Sunday April 12th.)


Frank Rich keeps defining The Issues –I recommend his strong column today.
I wrote the following poem as a Comment on his column about Chief Economic Adviser, Larry Summers.

“TRANSPARENCY TRANSFIGURES?”
(A poem for Larry Summers)
«»
One may be
the smartest-guy-
in-the-room.
«»

And still
too-clever-
by-half.
«»

The smartest fox
may be in charge
of the henhouse.
«»

But what has
become of the hens?
And their (nest)eggs?
«»

Can our smartest guy
resign himself
to resigning?
«»

Fore-go “Brightest”
and instead
try out for “Best”?
«»

— Malachi McCormick, Staten Island

QUESTION:
«»
Do you think he should resign?
Not resign?
Explain his apparently compromised situation?
