ATLAS SHRUGGED 50th Anniversary
I was at the biggest, greatest birthday party I ever attended in Washington, D.C. all day yesterday. It was the 50th anniversary of Ayn Rand's literary and philosophical masterpiece, Atlas Shrugged, and put together by The Atlas Society. While Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead is my favorite novel, her Atlas Shrugged is the Greatest novel I've ever read. I make this distinction because saying that they're Both my favorite novels doesn't work. I really don't know how to put it all in words how I felt yesterday, so I'll just say that it was as great a day as I expected it to be considering the matchless achievement that is Atlas Shrugged.
