: Noam Chomsky gives a snoozy forum interview at WashingtonPost.com (decrying power wherever it exists!). Here’s my favorite Q&A:
Washington, D.C.: Your writings and talks are generally very serious affairs. Do you have a humorous side? What sorts of things genuinely make you laugh?
Noam Chomsky: Playing with my grandchildren? Lots more. Frankly, I don’t like to respond to personal questions. I’m a private person. I don’t think it’s anyone’s business, apart from friends and family.
Yup, I think that answers it.
