Noam Chomsky: a legend, but such a rambler!

IMG_0362As part of the Concord Festival of Authors Noam Chomsky spoke at the Fenn School last Thursday night.

As we neared the entrance, a little late, my friend said “Is he just reading?” In almost complete monotone, Dr. Chomsky discussed his new book On Western Terrorism, where he  covered some of the same ground as Stephen Kinzer’s 2006 book Overthrow, which I recommend.

We stayed until we were on the edge of falling asleep (like someone sitting in the center balcony who could possibly  have been Mrs. Chomsky and the Fenn School boys who were forced to attend). While it was pretty amazing to see an aging legend in the flesh, we don’t regret leaving early.
