	I've said it before and I'll say it again.  Besides noting that
the type of person who's been attracted to Rand's work is basically the
kind of person who will invariably be on the OTHER side during The
Revolution, I did attempt to read Atlas Shrugged -- and gave up in

	This must've been 20 years ago, but I feel absolutely NO desire to
read Rand -- I don't even have the time to read the REAL geniuses -- like
Marx.  I don't know too much about `Objectivism', but I'm sure it has
stolen from Marxism, and if I _need_ to, I'll find out what I have to know
about it -- otherwise, _screw_ Ayn Rand and all her disciples.
