Happy Birthday, Noam Chomsky!


Happy Birthday to our dear friend, Noam Chomsky! It’s hard to know what to say to celebrate someone already as esteemed and well-known as Chomsky, so we’ll keep it simple and wish him many more years of offering an often insane, often unsconscionable world a voice of sanity and conscience. To many more, Noam!
