Vermont - Snow - Beer and some Moose = Good Times!
"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." - Benjamin Franklin
Off to Vermont for a long weekend of skiing, drinking and moose watching.
Lots of ideas should develop for the entire 'mighty blog' produkt line:
I enjoy the Chomsky blog. Don't know if you read Mark Steyn (great writer - www.marksteyn.com), who likes to remind all about Noam's prediction of the 'silent genocide' of 3 million in Afghanistan....still waiting on that one...or at least still waiting for someone to call him on that one.

Glad to see you still are active in the blogsphere as well.
I know of Mark Steyn, but I can't say I have read much of his work, that is until I started to last night as per your recommendation.
Chomsky has been called out on the silent genocide remark time and time over. Problem is that 'followers' of Chomsky fail to ever acknowledge just how wrong he has been about a great many topics/assertions.
Trying to convert a Chomskyite is like trying to convert a heroin addict. You can't do it with words/logic alone, and I have given up trying. The purpose of the debunk Chomsky site is to serve as a collection of refernce material for those having trouble (as I have had) to find good critical arguments against many of the fantasy portrayals of the world that Chomsky creates. I find more and more, that the academic world is beginning to refute Chomsky more and more, and not just on his political/social commentary, but also in his work in linguistics.
Again, good to bump into you again and I am checking out your site as well...glad to see you have had a couple of posts! Some intersting stuff.
