Debra, what took you so long? It is a tough read the first time but gets easier with each reading after that. I am presently on about my 5th or 6th time with it and it is much more enjoyable as I change the moocher and looter characters names to present day libs and members of the current administration. Can't figure where Harry fits in though. He is even too incompitent for this story.
Mitt Romney chose Paul Ryan to be his running mate. Since his teens, Ryan has been a big fan of Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged." In 2005, he told The Atlas Society that the novel shaped his "values system" -- and that speech has launched a number of recent columns by liberals aghast at Ryan's taste in literature.

"Almost everybody in the conservative movement has read Ayn Rand. She gives a moral dimension to defending the free enterprise system," alternate delegate Bill Evers of Stanford's Hoover Institution told me Monday morning as the California GOP delegation gathered.
