Atlas Wishes Everyone a Very Happy Hanukkah

December 11, 2009

From all of us here at Atlas, we wish you the very best of holidays as we enter period of the Festival of Lights.

Let us rededicate ourselves to the great and glorious causes we are challenged to take up now and in the future as we mark the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem nearly 2000 years ago.

Many Blessings!

    [Out of character for a moment: Being from Hollywood in the “Golden Age” I certainly have heard of Hanukkah some of the stricter and more observant Jewish Tinsel Towners did observe the holiday, even back then). Thus, I can whole–Hart–edly join in ASIB’s felicitations on this impressive cultural and historical observance and religious feast. Now into the twenty-first century of the Common Era, we are still called upon to commit to rededication to that which is good and holy, as well as keep our lamps brightly lit against all foreign and domestic forces of darkness that threaten to terrorise or impose this or that single world view upon us. We should also remember that Maccabean zeal should never slip into Herodian backsliding. Now back to my Gail Wynand—]

    “Hanukkah”???!!! Doesn’t that word call for a “C” at the beginning?
    Send me a Jewish editor, who knows something about this—

    [Massey again: this isn’t right. Hanukkah isn’t in “The Fountainhead” and and AR, a dogmatic atheist, wouldn’t want it in my portrayal of the character. But since this movie version is now somewhat out of her hands—as to my version of the Wynand character, let’s let King Vidor decide. Again—for myself— Happy Hanukkah!!!]

    Anyone wonder why Jay Golub and Daniel Peterson are desperately trying to sell the fiction that the Brooklyn GOP is doing well?

    Seems suspicious to me. They’re not apparently interested in facts. They even misrepresented how many people were at the party:

    “UE staff was there to witness this past Thursday’s event in Bay Ridge, which was attended by nearly 400 people. The food served at Bay Ridge Manor was excellent and everyone was in great spirits.”

    The party’s website say says “350 Attend GOP Holiday Party.” UE overestimates and the party doesn’t? Hmm.

    I guess Urban Elephants isn’t interested in facts but in aggrandizing Eaton.

    One must be very suspect of their priorities and prerogatives…
