### Shirley Ann Jackson - a new Summers?

Shirley Ann Jackson is a millionaire. She is the 18th president of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She is female. She is black. As the first MIT's black female PhD, Shirley Jackson is an exceptional black scientist. In fact, she is a particle physicist. And yes, she may be considered as a candidate for the president of Harvard University. My preliminary research shows that it could be a relative victory for Harvard.

Dr. Jackson definitely is NOT a new "Summers". She is a female, a category that according to Summers, must be lacking "innate ability". She would consider it an insult on her, not a compliment on her when you say she is a new "Summers".
