Sad news: no parts 2 and 3 of Atlas Shrugged

Scathing criticism (see Roger Ebert, for example, http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20110414/REVIEWS/110419990) of Atlas Shrugged Part 1 have convinced the movie’s producer not to proceed with filming the other two thirds of the Any Rand novel, planned for release on tax days in 2012 and 2013. Guess folks will have to read the book to find out how it ends. This is one more example of the major media’s pervasive influence on consumers. Can’t help thinking that these are the same sheep who vote for tax increases (that they and their neighbors can ill afford) because they are threatened by unions and politicians. There still aren’t quite enough citizens out there who decide for themselves; Ayn Rand might understand.
