MEMBER DIARY

For once I’m looking forward to April 15: “Atlas Shrugged: Part 1″ hits the theaters

“It always begins with ‘Atlas Shrugged.'”

I became a member of the Conservative Book Club back in the late 1970s and I recall a line like that in their monthly mailer advertising Ayn Rand’s books. I started with “Atlas Shrugged.” And then read just about everything else Ayn Rand wrote that I could get my hands on. Joined an Objectivist Club. Watched a couple of Objectivist scholars thoroughly perplex Christopher Hitchens and another lib at a debate at George Washington University in the early 1980s.

So, I was so pleasantly surprised to see that, finally, a film production of “Atlas Shrugged” is about to hit the theaters. At least “Part 1.” I predict it will be a huge hit. And, with the profits, the succeeding episodes will be even better. It really ought to be about a 12 episode mini-series on HBO or some other network.

Tonight while watching “Hannity” on Fox, I thought Sean Hannity said the release date is April 15, 2011. How fitting.

Here’s the trailer:

All of which brings to mind: “Howard Roark laughed.

I know where I’ll be on April 15, 2011.
