I sincerely hope this does not become mere teabagger propaganda. The Texas Libertarian Party has already been ruined. Please don't ruin Atlas Shrugged too!!!

I don't think the average teabagger would even take the time to read it much less understand it, but if I hear Sarah Palin scream "Who is John Galt?" a small part of me and my faith in humanity will die

Austin being Austin, it wouldn't surprise me if it is never shown here.

I see Austin as a city of opposition, sort of an embodiment of the American and especially the Texas spirit.

It would put money on it being played and being well received, but that's just my opinion. I have been wrong in the past.

Of course it is, this city does what no one expects it too. Labeling us is difficult.

I've yet to see it. Read the book as a teenager and enjoyed it. I hope they don't ruin the story in the movie...

Good book if you're 15 and under.
