Thanks...great post. Although my kids have read Rand, I will forward this to them—good antidote for the socialist bilge that surrounds us.
I pulled out my copy of Atlas Shrugged and started it on Dec 1, 2008 and finished on Dec 11.
That was my 6th or 7th reading. I have lost count.
I cannot recommend it enough for everyone who has a brain to read this book.
