QUOTE OF THE DAY
"Public opinion no longer has an effect on public policy," he says. "Our political campaigns, we would laugh about them if they were in another country. The last election was between two rich boys who went to Yale, and instead of talking about issues, they tried to sway us with images — two regular guys, one hunting, the other working at his ranch — except they weren't regular folks. The helplessness measure keeps rising. People feel they can't do anything."-Noam Chomsky, from "Chomsky: It's time to take back our lives," Jerry Large's column today in the Seattle Times. No you're not dreaming, this is something on Chomsky in the Seattle Times.
