December 7

There's plenty of contrarians born today, but I'll use the blog to talk about one particular fellow that walks to the beat of his own drummer. Today is Noam Chomsky's birthday; you know the name, but why? Are you a linguistics major? Do you have to write a psychology paper? Or are you just a Rage Against the Machine fan?
Before he got famous for being quoted by anti-capitalism punk bands, Chomsky got famous to challenging the theories on how children learn languages. His theories required some change in the theories of brain function, and psychology itself. As for his politics, he makes Ralph Nader look lke a sellout.
Here's Billordo, an Argentinian rocker, with "Noam Chomsky for President"
