    of many-million dollar corporations over the last two decades, as a part of my sideline/consulting work (in my day job, I'm an academic).

    I just found out that the third of these, too, is a raging Randite. It came up in a C-level meeting the other day—someone made a disparaging offhand comment comparing something to Ayn Rand and Mr. CEO (who I've previously thought was a generally reasonable guy—aggressive and workaholic, but all C-levels tend to be this way) blew his top and began to rant about communism, capitalism, the deserving, and the undeserving of the world.

    Eyebrows were raised. It took him a few minutes, but he realized that he'd misstepped and backed off and the fiscal year charts and graphs then continued to be displayed.

    "Liberty" is deaf, dumb, and useless without life itself.
