Shake Up in Chomsky Town
As of Feb. 1, Bad News: The Noam Chomsky Archive has closed its doors after four years of dedicated service. There's now a new official Chomsky site and the Chomsky team wanted to consolidate the professor's web presence to this site. R.R. King the editor of Bad News:Chomsky has been asked to help out with the new official site but hasn't decided yet if he will accept. There was some concern that Bad News: Chomsky hosted information that is not on the official site, but the official site intends to ensure that no data will be lost.
In other Chomsky news, it's come to my attention that some kind soul has put mp3's of the legendary debate between Chomsky and Richard Perle up on the internet for download; this is the debate from the 80's that Edward Herman mentions in his article, "From Security To Insecurity State".
Also I think Shake Up in Chomsky Town was the name of a Roger Corman movie.
