Dear Readers,

I now consider this blog to be my Juvenelia. Have fun perusing the archives, and find me at my new haunt, here.

LOTR vs. Ayn Rand

This quote has been circulating on the interwebs (h/t to Abe +SWVL @ my google reader crew)

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.

Via Lawyers, Guns & Money via OJ.

I think that says it all quite nicely, don't you?
