Times Square, NYC - Capitalism Works For Me - this fall

I've been waiting to tell you about this and, as of this morning, I can.

Capitalism Works For Me! True/False will show in Times Square for about two weeks this fall.

Simon Dove and Lili Chopra from the Crossing the Line Festival have been working for months along with the Times Square Alliance to make this happen.

I didn't allow myself to think about it much until I knew for sure it was happening. Now it is and I can't explain how excited I am to have the sign shown in the largest city center in the US - to get this idea out to so many people from all over the world. It's incredible.

I learned as I was riding the train into the city just now. I walked immediately to Times Square just to look. I'm writing to you from there now.

This is gonna be crazy.

Thanks again for helping to make it happen.

      Well done Steve! Love the updates. I didn't do the survey but will do. I'm pretty sure your folks have tried to ring, ages ago, thanks. I am sure the sign print and Utopia print etc will get here when they can. Keep up the good work! Maurice
