Subject: "Language and Mind" Film Info

Many individuals provided me with the information I requested
on the Chomsky "Language and Mind" film. Many also
requested that I pass that informationon

. I have not
seen the film myself, so I cannot vouch for its value.

I will note that one who sent me the information said that
the company has a RIGID thirty-day return policy, so if
you do buy and don't like it, return it within thirty

Also, the film is pricey at $275.
