'Atlas Shrugged': From Fiction to Fact in 52 Years

I'm glad Ayn Rand didn't live to see this.

But I wonder what the Brandens and others in her inner circle think of the eOn.

But as recently as 1991, a survey by the Library of Congress and the Book of the Month Club found that readers rated "Atlas" as the second-most influential book in their lives, behind only the Bible.

Atlas is popular and yet fifty years of readers couldn't stop it from coming true.

To paraphrase the Thing, it's shruggin' time! To the gulch!

"We don't need to make a movie out of the book," Mr. Kelley jokes. "We are living it right now."

Problem is, there's no John Galt in sight.

If you can't see him, be him.

Amritas...you are bad. It's been a while since I read Atlas Shrugged, guess I need to go back for a refresher.

You really get around, I've been reading Big Hollywood for the past few days and I've noticed several comments by you (or someone pretending to be you).

That's me at Big Hollywood. Accept no imitations. I've known James Hudnall for ten years and you can find me on occasion in the comments section of his blog.

I used to comment a lot on blogs including Sarah's between 2002 and 2004. Then I went into lurking mode until she helped me get out of the closet and back into the gulch. The eOn's begun. I can't hide any longer ...
