P: n/a
Is there a Python library that would allow me to take a paragraph of text,
and generate a one or two sentence summary of that paragraph?

If you are on Windows you could use COM to stuff the text into a Word
document and then use Word's autosummarize feature to generate the summary.

However, even Microsoft admit that "Itís unlikely that Word will create the
exact summary that you need. You will need to do some editing of the
summary."
