A Math Problem

I have a copy of Moby Dick that I haven’t read yet, so it will be a long time before I get around to Ayn Rand. I do hear a lot on the radio about the movie release of ‘Atlas Shrugged’ and its disappointing performance at the box office.

I feel your pain, guys. ‘Serenity’ just about earned its expenses back, though it’s doing good on cable.

Smart people, even ubermenschen, sometimes miss the obvious.

If you despise the masses, how are you going to persuade the masses to buy tickets at upwards of ten bucks each? For a movie praising the elite, the few, the solitary? When your audience is made up of rugged individualists sitting alone in a half-empty theater? And you expect to make a profit? Do the math.
