|Mr. Reidy, |
As several others have taken the opportunity to point out, knowledge (and celebration) of this story has in no way been confined to, "the already converted."
In addition to the other examples, for my part, I will admit to spending some of my free time discussing college hoops at ESPN.com. The day after Mr. Clements announced his intentions, even that message board was buzzing with discussion.
Even if he does not succeed in having the hotel built, he certainly has been successful in increasing awareness of Objectivist-esque principles, and providing the world with, through the use of irony, a concrete example of why the ruling was unfair, immoral, etc.
