  1. Mr Punch Says:

    No basis for comparison – Ferguson’s piece is (1) a personal statement (2) by a Scot (3) who was a professor; Potter’s was (1) a general assessment (2) by an anglophone (3) in an administrative position.

  2. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Mr Punch: Ferguson’s was written a few years into his time at Harvard, a time that stretched long after the writing of this piece, which loudly upset a lot of people. Harvard, being a grow-nup, did not care.

    Potter is as much a professor/administrator type as Ferguson. In fact, after Potter was forced out of his administrative position because of his exercise of free speech, he went back to his professor gig.
