Does this guy really think he's funny? Maybe he is in print, but he was definitely NOT humorous on the show, Brian. feh

So, your problem with Delta(?)...the one that you made the audience fill out postcards for you at Union Hall...how did that work out?

I student taught HS English, mid-60s, suburb of Washinton, DC.
My college prep class was obsessed with Ayn Rand. I quickly read the Fountainhead but never got around to Atlas Shrugged. I've thought of those kids often over the years - they'd have been college students during the free-wheeling late 60s and I wondered which "side" they were on. Those kids are 60 now and I wonder if perhaps they're all Republican lawyers or hedge fund managers or maybe (I hope) community organizers. ;-)
