I'm Not Feeling Clever Yet, so I'll Steal (but credit) a 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."

From Kung Fu Monkey.

This is a daisy chain quote. That is to say, it was up on firedoglake, as a quote from Paul Krugman. I followed the link to his blog, and it was there credited to Kung Fu Monkey. I guess that with the contemporary release of Part One of "Atlas Shrugged," the movie, picking on Ayn Rand and her fans id back in season. Come en git it.
