The hottest guy on campus these days is not on the football team, he's an ornery linguistics professor. Guerrilla News Network reports: Europeans have philosopher stars. They smoke Gauloises, they cavort with arty fashion models and artists who cut up cows, they wear Armani, they write long, incomprehensible treatises from prison cells about the transcendental apparatus and the dialectic of empire. Here in the U.S. we have one rumpled 74-year-old linguistics professor who looks like your boring uncle who collects model trains. His name is Noam Chomsky, and he's having something of a renaissance, despite the fact the mainstream American media won't touch him a ten-foot mic pole.
