Please tell me this is his obituary!
Darn. I thought this was an obit. Guess not.
Assuming the title should read “dead at 90” not that he turned 90. The first is encouraging, the second disappointing.
Good old chumpsky; first encountered him when he was a linguist at MIT and I was studying linguistics at Wheaton. He had a novel approach, I thought, in that it was loosey-goosey psychobabble linguistics which I had no use for.
Dang. I got excited for a moment thinking this might be an obituary for that old scumbag.
Same here. I was ready to celebrate.
Not dead yet
I was happy then not so happy.
Saw him twice in the late 80s. His talks were complicated hairballs of conspiracy with gaps that leftists would easily fill with evil intent and class warfare. At that time, Henry Kissinger was his bête noire
He’s a bit like Michael Moore (although less popular), in that he appeals to strident leftists who want to believe anything that supports their world-view.
Michael Moore? The founding member of the Film And Television Big Actors Guild?................
He was a crazed loon that even the left had no use for until Reagan became POTUS.
Then Chomsky became a useful tool in the progressives’ quest in damaging common sense and reason.
At first glance I thought I saw the word “dead” in that title.
I don’t want to read the story, as it’s probably a puff piece. He’s a darling of the leftist media.
This devolved into “New Journalism.”
“Man somehow kept going and going...”
And now he’s gone...to Hades, I trust.
Nim Chimpsky and Paul Erlich...two loons from the past, still chattering their nonsense 50 years after their sell by date.
He’s not gone. This isn’t an obit.
D**N! He’s not dead YET?!?
