Oh, yes!  I really adored the way she made rape - via her rape scene in
ATLAS SHRUGGED - appear to be something women really, deep down, want.  That
book - an eclectic mixture of rape, the "me first" philosophy, abundant
smoking, and raw capitalism - really got me aroused and excited about life.
Whoo-hoo!  It also makes one handy-dandy computer table-leg holder-upper.
Why, that pragmatic Ayn thought of everything!!!

"The new HPB?!"  Are we talking about the same Ayn Rand - the one who also
wrote yet another admirable piece of rather ripe poop entitled "The Virtue
of Selfishness?"

Well. . .I see only happy days ahead.
