Who is John Galt?

Finished my annual re-read of Atlas Shrugged, yay! I do enjoy spending time with Dagny and Francisco and the rest of them. I recently heard it referred to as nerd revenge porn LOL!! I suspect he has entirely missed the point. Who better to hang out with than intelligent, motivated, honest people who want to be the best they can be? Not to mention it's a great antidote to stupid television, idiotic , rabid pundits and the rest. (Speaking of pundits: I'm annoyed, but not surprised, to learn Glen Beck is also a fan of the book. I hate to share anything with that guy!)

At one point during the re-read I happened to glance at the front page of the New York Times and was startled to realize that having been immersed in that world had quite altered how I viewed the headlines in this one LOL! I should have expected it, remembering how he experience always leaves me in an interesting mood: a mixture of disaffection with 99% of mankind and determination to live my own life better. Personally I think we need more books that have that effect...
