• • • Jumping off the cliff better than being pushed
Atlas Shrugged |
My favorite book is "Atlas Shrugged." It is a novel about a dystopian future where the Mouchers and Intelligentsia have taken over. In it the Producers, those who work to make the money the Mouchers and Intelligentsia want to redistribute, quit and leave the Mouchers and Intelligentsia to their own devices.

• The Third World right next door
Just in case there are any social Darwinist, survival of the fittest, Ayn Rand Republicans reading this, I want it on the record that no sense of guilt or a “bleeding heart” motivated my small act of generosity. It was anger.

• Clinging to the Communist boogeyman and other fallacies
[Columnist Larry] Breeden's flirtation with obsolescence doesn't end with McCarthyism. He clings to another, even older, fallacy. He writes that he is a “free-market capitalist.” His adoption of Ayn Rand's motto, “each according to his ability” seems to imply support for the antiquated vision of laissez-faire capitalism and its attendant “every man for himself” world-view. The truth of the matter is that we are social animals, with a very real connection to generations past and future.

•DA says man tried to steal law school test
[Kevin] Siangchin asked [a Law School Admissions Council] employee to contact him via e-mail. A detective, posing as the employee, contacted him and he laid out his request. Siangchin, an engineer, used the name John Galt on the e-mail. John Galt is a character in the Ayn Rand novel “Atlas Shrugged,” about an engineer who designed a revolutionary new motor powered by ambient static electricity with the potential to change the world.
