• • Monday Medley 
,
Novelist/philosopher Ayn Rand’s birth anniversary (1905) is Thursday. The author of “Atlas Shrugged” and “The Fountainhead” had some unique views on life — and a lot of people have never been exposed to them. Here’s a start: “To say ‘I love you,’ one must first be able to say the ‘I.’ ”

• • Superman myths 
,
Individualism  | It is no surprise that conservatives (see Mike Rosen column April 28), who see themselves as part of a plutocratic elite destined to power, would find affinity with the Superman myths of Ayn Rand’s writing. However, while heroic individualism is one part of human survival, a successful culture is one with a social contract that balances the needs of society with those of the individual.

• • Go see ‘Atlas’ 
,
Atlas Shrugged movie  |Atlas Shrugged  | First published in 1957, Ayn Rand’s epic novel “Atlas Shrugged” is the story about John Galt, a man who decides to go on strike to stop “the motor of the world.” It showcases several complex characters who embody heroism and evil in a plot that combines drama, mystery, romance and science fiction. The result is ultimately inspirational.

 Local man’s book raises concern 
,
The Pueblo Police Department is investigating a local man who touched off a nationwide controversy when he published a guide for pedophiles. [....] His biographies [...] mention that he was a member of the U.S. Army and is an “admirer” of Aristotle and Ayn Rand.

• • Honesty shrugged 
,
Atlas Shrugged movie  |Atlas Shrugged  | Crucial footage of an upcoming independent movie was stolen along with a laptop Tuesday in Pueblo. Film crews working on the cinematic remake of author Ayn Rand’s best-seller “Atlas Shrugged,” were in town earlier this week and shot a few scenes of the steel mill and the historic Union Depot. It was at the depot where first-assistant director Daniel Katzman’s backpack and laptop were stolen between 8 and 8:30 p.m. “There were personal photos, photos of location shoots, photos of one of the films I’m working on, ‘Story of Buddha.’ There were scripts, schedules, photos, crucial stuff for ‘Atlas Shrugged’ and just really, really important stuff. I don’t care who took it, I want it back,” Katzman said Thursday.

 Revelation: Left and right and afterlife 
,
I have no (zero, zilch, nada) idea of heaven. But I believe this much: Whatever is the essence of me will be aware that I’m on the other side and that I’m in contact or union with whatever is the essence of all the others there, and all of us together and individually somehow are in the presence of the creative essence popularly known as God. [....] My “vision” would seek out Mark Twain and Will Rogers. I’d look, too, for M.L. King Jr., Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Shakespeare, Henry Thoreau — wow, is that W. Somerset Maugham chatting with Aristotle and Socrates? — and maybe I’d “see” Ayn Rand, Willa Cather and Winston Churchill in a conversation.

 Spruce up 

Ayn Rand once famously suggested that if everyone kept the street in front of their property clean, we wouldn’t need streetsweepers.
