• • People turn backs on God, look to their own gods
The housing bubble, the Great Recession, the Iraq invasion, the Madoff-scale financial frauds, the scientific quest for human immortality, the hosannas to Ayn Rand individualism, every daily Internet hoax — they all depend on chipper misreadings of available data and a lack of skepticism about human flaws and irrational exuberance.

• Electorate didn’t get the real issues facing country

• • Court always decides constitutionality
Atlas Shrugged |
Ayn Rand did not need to predict the future to formulate her fictional “Anti-Dog Eat Dog Act.” She lived through 1930s America. She knew from experience that “fair competition” meant the destruction of competition and industrial progress.

• Citizens deserve respect, American ‘Idols’ don’t
Scott Brown didn’t win a U.S. Senate seat because a state that elected Barack Obama by nearly 30 points collectively read Ayn Rand. He won because the incumbent party for that seat took it for granted, ran a sorry candidate and didn’t respond to voter concerns. That’s not a lesson the state and local Democrats are ready to learn.

• • Grass-roots disgust rallies conservatives
Atlas Shrugged |
Wes Messamore's political life was redirected in 2007 by a message stenciled on a cheap roadside sign: "Who is Ron Paul?" Messamore, a fan of the ultra-libertarian writer Ayn Rand, caught the reference quickly. "Who is John Galt?" he said, quoting a famous line from Rand's influential book Atlas Shrugged.

• Good ideas are a big part of labor picture
The Fountainhead |
Ayn Rand wrote in The Fountainhead that the man who first discovered how to make fire "was probably burned at the stake he had taught his brothers to light." And, sadly, that's how common people have often greeted new ideas — with suspicion, fear, even hostility.

•Johnson not same old Vandy coach
Profile of Vanderbilt University football coach Bobby Johnson.
Johnson is a bookworm, a voracious reader of many topics. His favorite? Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. Beethoven, Chevy Chase, Angie Harmon and Ayn Rand? The man with the boring name maybe isn't so boring after all.
