Same with Atlas Shrugged.

    Yes, although the book was written in 1948 it is uncanny how we are really living 1984 right now......

    The book stores should move it to the non-fiction section now.

    Big Brother has arrived.

      The title 1984 was simply a reversal of the last two digits of 1948.

      In 1984 it was all over the news but then it was more like, "You think maybe?" than the realities of today.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.


      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
