Who's Ayn Rand? And what did Atlas have to shrug about?

What's the name of the other book Ayn Rand wrote? The Fountainhead right? What the the name of the guy in that one? You know, the one who worked in the quarry and was an architect and all that.
sorry for the hijack..

Howard Roark was the architect in The Founainhead.
She also wrote Anthem, but I didn't think it was as good as Atlas Shrugged or The Fountainhead. Atlas Shrugged is still my all time favorite novel. I was in Barnes and Noble the other day and saw that it was required reading for the local H.S. A good sign to be sure.

Anything that prompts somebody to read Atlas Shrugged is a good thing. I wish we could make people read it before they were allowed to vote.
For some reason it's easy for people to accept that they want something unearned from those above them, but they can't realize that people below them want something unearned from them. And all that will accomplish is to drag everybody down.
From Each According to His Ability, To Each According to His Need...Sheesh.
I prefer "I swear—by my life and my love of it—that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."
And for those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, you can read one of the greatest speeches in literary history here. Galt Speech And you can find that elusive answer to 'Who is John Galt'
Man I am glad I live in Texas where people dont hijack threads,
its good to live in Texas, In fact I have a solution to your origional problem, make everyone live in Texas, then there wont be any problem with people posting outside state laws, So If you all move to Texas then no one will Hijack any more threads, Until then I guess there will be hijacking, But it wont happen in Texas, because we have house bill 3403422.233 which states hijacking a public forum is punishable by having to read all of berneyG's posts 3 times in a row.
And who said deterance didnt work, //
didnt push any buttons there did I?
Cheers, good point, nice rant, Im guilty as well but have tried to stick to the op ? sometimes other peoples response require additional offtopic comments, dont believe me? ask Ginger, shes at berneygs house now typing.
I hope my wife doesn't catch her, she's a pretty good shot at close quarters.
The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.
