Jason gave me a copy of Seed magazine this morning and told me there was a Noam Chomsky article in it that I would like.

I haven't gotten to it yet. I'm sure it is going to get me all riled up and frankly, it's too hot to be riled.

Instead, I spent much of the morning grocery shopping and putting window film on the windows in the bedroom. I was supposed to do all the windows on the front of the house but changed my mind.

So, after several hours of cussing all the really bad cuss words I know, interspersed with singing along with the Allman Brothers, the windows are done.

And I ain't doing no more.

I bought a redonkulously expensive teeny tiny pack of raspberries.

I'm going to go play Southern Belle and recline on the settee and eat them. All. In one sitting.

OK - I was curious. I have listened to Chomsky's book Hegemony or Survival. By your writing I couldn't quite tell whether it was the article or chomsky that you were interested in....or whether it was a dislike or like that was the source of intrigue....and maybe that was the intent.
Anyway, I have never heard of this magazine. I live quite a sheltered life. So I went to their website and found it to be rather interesting. The only mention of Chomsky I could find was of starling confounding the notion of verbal language.

Lisa - I still haven't read the article, but it is Chomsky and Robert Trivers discussing deceit and self-deception. Chomsky has been vocal in his opposition to the present administration's policies and he just puts it in a way that I can't help but get riled up about it. But it was the topic of self-deception that Jason knew would interest me - the running monologue we all have in our minds that defines the world around us and how we perceive it. Human psychology and the social structures we construct fascinate me. I don't know if the article covers that, but we shall see.
Oh, and Seed is a scientific magazine, most of the articles go right over my head. This is in the September, 2006 issue.
