I remember once

I remember once back in the early Nineties I nearly got to ask Chomsky a question live on the air but I chickened out. He was in the CBC Newsworld studios and they were taking calls, I called and got straight through. No one knew who he was. I hadn't taken the time to think of an actual question so I lost my nerve and hung up.

It's hard to imagine now how isolated he was back then, few people read his books. You could always get them from the library, no problem. He was just some obscure intellectual that no one could understand.
