4th century BCE? During Aristotle's time?

I would love that class.



But dude -- reading Noam Chomsky for "pleasure" is a little fucked up.

I arrived at the San Francisco International Airport with a Spanish copy of one of Chomsky's book in my hand. I even put it on the desk of the immigration officer, and he let me in

Don't get me wrong -- I have about 7 Chomsky books on my shelves. But how much pleasure is there in reading about how badly fucked up the world is and always has been and always will be until people organize themselves to change it which of course we never will?

Nah, really, I do get it -- the pleasure is in seeing articulated so clearly the problems in the world that you have always sensed but not been able to put your finger on.

Well, when I say "pleasure," I really mean "something I'm not being tested on or forced to read for class." Actually, I picked it up because it ties into another class I'm taking on 20th century US intervention and foreign policy.

Right now I'm reading an article about the atrocities committed by "Tiger Force" in Vietnam. This is some seriously disturbing shit.

I'm alternating between scholarly articles on the politics of the Medici takeover in Quattrocentro Florence and my daughter's Nancy Drew mysteries.
