Larry Moses, The Progress (Overton, NV) Atlas Shrugged | No one asked me but… The Hostess Bakery Company galted the Baker’s Union and its 18,500 members. Those of you who are familiar with Ayn Rand’s classic Atlas Shrugged know the main question in the book is: Who is John Galt? Stand by for a spoiler alert. John Galt is the man who organized the withdrawal of all the men in society who have the money and who have the knowledge of how to run a successful business. This left only the inept government to keep the country’s economy going. Being ‘galted’ is a word that I have just made up, but I believe it will be used more often as those with means and know-how merely take their money and disappear.
