Political, AND correct

Rogers at Kung Fu Monkey says:

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."


Further comment seems superfluous.

(h/t Badtux the Snarky Penguin, and a nod to Sungold at Kittywampus for having such interesting commenters and e-ssociates.)

Ayn Rand was a dangerous lunatic.

Her fairytales seem to underlie the thinking of the people behind the Global Economic Crisis.

I'll take the orcs any day. Ayn Rand's philosophy is just annoying beyond words.

Badtux rocks

Badtux is pretty cool, isn't he?

I'm glad to see you blogging again. I've been a bit desultory in recent weeks - too sick to say much at all - but am hoping to be more prolific this spring.

Take care, Sunflower!
