I was well pissed off when my pal Babs told me on Saturday that her partner Brian had been through to Edinburgh University to see Noam Chomsky speak last week! Grrr! How come I always miss these things?
However, I found that there's a video of the entire lecture available on the Web. It's quite long and dear Professor Chomsky is as dry and uncharismatic as ever (with his material though, who needs charisma?), but if you want an extra boost to your motivation to protest G8 here in Scotland later this year it's worth a look.
