|Hello, I'm new here. This is my second post, actually. I would like to say hello to everyone by posting a revision of an old blog post I wrote.|
Here goes . . .
February 2, 2005, marked 100 years to the day of Ayn Rand's birth. The day of the month is of particular importance because, every February 2, if a politician comes out and sees his shadow, we will have 60 more years of the welfare state.
As for Miss Rand's magnum opus, I enjoyed every syllable on each of the 1,087 pages of the paperback edition I read. The prose sparked vivid images that made me feel as if I were gazing upon an exquisite painting.
I was so enthralled by the grandeur of it all that I was quite sad to see it eventually come to an end.
And so I have only one complaint about Atlas Shrugged:
It was too short.
