Have you read the 1st volume of the Twain autobiography? I started it over a year ago, but I have touched it for months...which is strange because I loved reading it.

...didn't get any hell for saying "rand".

Guess that's a failure.

Did you mean Ayn Rand?

yuck.

You probably won't appreciate this quote:
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.
Link.

I'm also a big fan of the facebook group: "Plugging the Gulf Oil Leak with the Works of Ayn Rand." It's so perfect in so many ways...
