    3. I've just noted a typo in my previous comment - I meant 'corker OF a comment'...but now you've messed with my head Doc - What's the title of that novel - 'He Shrggged' or 'It's a corker' ? Give us a clue...

    4. 'Tis called "Atlas Shrugged" It's a panegyric to ruthless selfishness. Rand believed that this was what made America successful and the World a Better Place.

  12. Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's book, but 'Map lass shrugged' is all yours Penny!
