Western Civilization Survives

Weeks later, I introduced Chomsky at a large FAIR conference in Los Angeles; I mentioned his recent PBS guest spot and got a big laugh by referring to our jokey headline "Western Civilization Survives." Amid the laughter, I could hear Chomsky off-stage behind me, saying, "Oh, heck!" -- disappointed by his ineffectiveness.

While he didn't succeed through that one TV appearance in bringing an end to Western imperialism, or what passes for Western Civilization, he goes on trying at age 85. 

Happy birthday, Noam!
