Potluck Quote of the Day (1/10): Noam Chomsky Meets Marvin the Martian
Why are we featuring an image of Mars with a quote from left-wing philosopher/linguist/historian Noam Chomsky, one of America's leading critics of the Vietnam War, who happens to still be alive at age 87?
Well, just read this quote. And, thanks to the kids from Duke University for helping us with this research......(we are actually UNC fans here, but we wanted to be nice....and since all the college students are on break for the summer, perhaps, they will be reading this instead of playing video games)....
We gather that Speak of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) is a closet admirer of Chomsky's work (yeah, we just said that to get your attention)....
This will be our first of ten quotes from people who have achieved fame and/or notoriety in a variety of fields.
Here is the quote:
"If there were an observer on Mars, they would probably be amazed that we have survived this long."
