My deepest sympathies to the Chomsky family

Carol Chomsky has passed away.

Alexander Cockburn's introduction to Chomsky's book Chronicles of Dissent (1992):
The times I've stayed the night at Noam and Carol Chomsky's house in Lexington I've watched him at even-tide working his way through a capacious box of the day's intake of tripe--newspapers, weeklies, monthlies, learned journals, flimsy mimeo-ed mailers--while Carol Chomsky does the same thing on the other side of the room.
