Washington Metro Objectivism Discussion (WMOD)

                    August 20, 1997 Meeting

                  General Discussion

The August WMOD meeting will feature general discussion.
Potential discussion topics include summer conferences and
the July WMOD visit to the Ayn Rand archives at the Library
of Congress. Anyone who attended the Institute for Objectivist
Studies 1997 Summer Seminar (7/5-13) at the University of Virginia
in Charlottesville, VA is invited to give a short presentation
on talks that they found particularly interesting.

         When and Where is the WMOD Meeting?

Join us on Wednesday August 20.  You can either join us for
dinner at 7 pm and/or for the discussion at 8:15 pm at the
Fortune Chinese Restaurant at Baileys  Xroads, VA on Route 7
between 7 Corners and Columbia Pike (5900  Leesburg Pike
703/998-8888). You can take METRO to the West Falls  Church
stop and then take METRO buses 29A or 29B East on Route 7
toward Baileys Xroads. The Fortune is on this route. After
the meeting we can give you a ride back to a METRO station.
WMOD has arranged for a $15 fixed price dinner (including
tax and tip).  Or you can order from the menu.  Please RSVP
to WMOD (703) 820-7696 before noon Wednesday 8/20 so that we
can tell the restaurant how many tables to set up.

                              Time Magazine Poll

Time  Magazine is conducting an Internet poll to determine
the "100 Most Influential Person(s)" of the 20th Century.
These 100 individuals, selected by Internet voters, will be featured
in a series of articles to be printed in TIME beginning in 1998.
