At 12:58 AM 21/02/01 -0800, Max reposted a Feb 1999 speech by Charlton
Heston, which said toward the end:

>When Time magazine's cover portrays millennium nuts as
>deranged, crazy Christians holding a cross as it did last month ...
>boycott their magazine and the products it advertises.

Presumably he means this one, Jan 18, 1999:,9263,1101990118,00.html

but what was John Galt complaining about in this odd imperative? Was he
deeply offended to the point of boycott because `millennium nuts' were
being unfairly portrayed as Christians? Was he miffed because deranged,
crazy Christians were being unfairly pilloried as `millennium nuts'? This
is a nuance that only an American could unpack, I suspect. Could someone
please make it clear to this poor boy holding up two crossed Vegemite
