Cognitive Dissonance

Always having been one to bite off more than I could chew, I've decided not to make that decision with my graduate education and have extended my stay in school to two years so that I might actually be a Master of Science in Education. (Apparently my advisor thought I might come out alive next summer after having taken on full time grad units while working full time.)

Part of that mastery entails, as I feared, the theories of Noam Chomsky. I extensively poured over his scientific research when I studied linguistics as an undergrad, but only hoped it would be the last time I had to credit this horribly anti-American professor. Not so.

I guess credit should be given to whom it is due, and he did earn his dues in linguistic study.

But don't think this means you're on my good list, Chomsky.

Not for a second.
