A Celebration to Last Throughout the Years

Today is Milton Friedman Day--the most important intellectual of the 20th century:

Stanford, California – January 23, 2007 – Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mayor Gavin Newsome yesterday announced that they were declaring Monday, January 29th, to be Milton Friedman Day in the State of California and in the City of San Francisco. In making these proclamations, the Governor and Mayor join the City Council of Chicago, Mayor Richard M. Daley, The University of Chicago, The Chicago Mercantile Exchange, The Economist, Free to Choose Media, and more than two dozen partner organizations in declaring the 29th as a day of remembrance honoring the Nobel-Prize-winning economist.

And everyone is invited to the party going on right here:

The contest, sponsored by and the Idea Channel, is open to anyone who is interested in producing a video in the spirit of Dr. Friedman, whose passion in life was challenging the status quo. Cash prizes will be offered to the first, second and third place winners. For more information....
