Unless his interviews were edited, Chomsky was able to do this as well, in both English and French (and, presumably, Hebrew, but I don't think any discourse he might have given in that language has been published). ============================== Thomas Wier <trwier@...> "If a man demands justice, not merely as an abstract concept, but in setting up the life of a society, and if he holds, further, that within that society (however defined) all men have equal rights, then the odds are that his views, sooner rather than later, are going to set something or someone on fire."
