Atlas Shrugged Movie is Raising Cain
2011 -- Ayn Rand’s epic
Shrugged, is finally coming to the silver screen. Whether
you’ve read the book or not, you won’t want to miss Part 1 of the film,
which debuts around the country the weekend of April 15-16-17th.
far, the nearest confirmed theaters are in the Seattle area. You can
help bring it to Portland, or a theater in your city, by “Demanding” it
at the link below. The book was published in 1957, but the
producers of the film have wisely set it in 2016. This way, Americans
can see what’s coming if we don’t turn around the collectivist
government in Washington.
It’s a great story, and a powerful warning. Don’t miss

���OMED: Many early pieces in Oregon Magazine were written in a version of Netscape
Composer that in modern browsers produces black diamonds with reversed question
marks inside them. These are almost always quotation marks, apostrophes or dashes.
When you see text that contains those black diamonds, it means I haven't gotten around
to repairing the problem, yet.
Lastly, all of our early work URL suffixes were "htm." When the computer gods decided
to change those to "html," problems arose, but changing the suffix from one to the other
may make the page you want available.
Final Thought: If you think this magazine is a graphic mess, you should see my garage. (LL)
