We've pushed the boat out this time, too, with a cabaret singer and roving magician thrown in. Should be fun ... especially if we manage a fourth successive year without a punch up.
For a little interest, though, you may like this behind-the-scenes look at the making of a new film based on Atlas Shrugged, a book well-regarded by libertarians the world over. In order to do do it justice, I understand this is to be the first part of a trilogy, though there is much debate about whether the makers will capture the essence of Ayn Rand's original work.
Something tells me, though, that however good (or bad) it turns out to be, it won't pop up at your local neon-bedecked, chav-encrusted, popcorn-littered multiplex alongside the latest 3D blockbuster or The Rock 'visual chewing gum' offering. You may have to scan the specialist movie theatres or wait for the DVD release.
It's also interesting to note that, although it's taken 53 years from the book's publication, just the fact that such a project is being undertaken at all is further proof that libertarian ideas are gaining significant attention in the US. Which is rather encouraging.
