    1. That's funny. I read Atlas Shrugged about a decade ago. I think Ayn Rand would say I totally missed the point of her novel. But that was my feeble attempt to parody her in 33 words.

  2. I have never (gasp!) read this book. Don't throw stones. :)

    I would agree with what you've written, however.

  5. I think some of our political leaders need to re-read this novel, or at least your Trifextra synopsis.
