Overnight Open Thread: Everything Old is New Again (genghis)

5:00 P.M. Friday is a long long time away. Make the most of your remaining few hours of freedom

First up, Iowahawk is honing his screenwriting skills with a documentary about The Red Scare for the Department of Homeland Security. Of course this film is a contemporary update in which the new Red Menace is you, at least according to the report DHS released last week on the rise of right-wing extremism. The report is accurate in the sense that all of you are indeed a menace, but gets the reasons all wrong. Mostly you’re a tripping hazard to people who have to step over you as you lay passed-out on various sidewalks, stairs, in doorways and such.

Second, Bruce over at “And Still I Persist” has penned a well-thought-out and extensive review of Atlas Shrugged with a comparative analysis between events in the book and the current situation. Spoiler Alert: Various plot elements are revealed, so you’ve been warned.

Spoiler Alert Update: If and when you read the review, please don't post anything in the comments here that would be considered a spoiler. No one's done that, but I just want to make sure it doesn't happen. Thanks.

Tonight’s overnight open thread is brought to you by the Aye-aye.

"We can haz hugz?"
