Noam Chomsky

Living proof you don't actually NEED ten thousand monkeys at typewriters. Just one trained as a 'semanticist' will do.

That's a 'copyright' statement for me, on that. I haven't read that anywhere alse, anyway

What brought it to mind was I just read Charon QC's Blawg Review where he says he found Chomsky's video lecture on the US election system 'fascinating'.

Is that some gentle irony poke at 'quasi-intellectual gibberish'? Dunno.. I've never totally mastered British wit.
