Roger Leisner shows off his Noam Chomsky coloring book

Well, damned if it doesn’t seem like an idea whose time has come: a man in Maine is making Noam Chomsky coloring books. Roger Leisner “sees a market in the gray ponytail set” for them, now that all those “1960s radicals are becoming grandparents,” accordiing to this AP wire story. Leisner sells them for $5 each. Next up on the list? Howard Zinn, natch.
