Atlas Shrugged Classes Up Amazon

I was doing a search of the recent Amazon sales figures for Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, and stumbled upon a marvelous discovery: In Amazon's "Literature and Fiction/Classics" category, Atlas Shrugged is the #1 best-seller!

Even better, the #2 best-selling "Classic" is also Atlas Shrugged, just another version of the paperback. The #3 best-seller is The Federalist Papers. And the #4 best-seller is, amazingly, Atlas Shrugged again!

Rounding out the top ten are Fahrenheit 451 (#7), Thomas Paine's Common Sense (#8), and Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead (#9).

People are starting to sit up and pay attention to what is going on in the world around them.

Woo hoo!

Hi Dan. I like your blog... and this one particularly - because of your positive belief that things are changing more now than they were before (not sure if I agree though. Haven't people always been gradually opening their eyes? Isn't that what makes us evolve, little by little?) and because you said 'woo hoo!'.

Hi...this message isn't for you. It's for your wife. I think of her often, and wish we could have still been friends. I'm delighted to hear she's married now -- your wedding photos are just perfect. Would you just tell her that Jeanette said hello, and that she is missed?

Hello Jeanette. Yes, we lost contact a while ago. I hope you are doing well, though I can't see any way to contact you but through this blog. I've also thought about you over the years. Dan didn't see your comment. My mom was poking around Dan's blog and called me and told me about it just today.

If you get this feel free to write back with your email address or something :)
