Always trying to figure things out with the minimum of bullshit and the maximum of belligerence.

The stupid! It hurts! Make it stop!

Pamela Geller Oshry on the 50th anniversary of the publication of Atlas Shrugged:

My parents are G-d and Ayn Rand. I forget who said that but it could have been me. 50 Years ago, Atlas Shrugged was published.

If Rand was alive today she would be apoplectic over the appeasement to savages. Her treatise seemed outrageous when she published it. Today, it seems tame in comparison to what is happening in the war on Islamic jihad. But she called it. She called it all.

How brilliant, prescient Rand was. She defined my epistemology and helped to teach my how to think, question and deduce. This blog pays tribute everyday - in its very existence.

In case you don't recognize the "quote" that Ms. Oshry is misusing, it's an example illustrating how the serial comma can eliminate ambiguity.
