Ayn Rand's defenders
Hub Blog initially missed this WSJ ode to Ayn Rand
. Tech Ticker's Henry Blodget and Aaron Task
make sensible mincemeat of it. Check out the video to the left. ... The two also make me think I've been a bit too harsh on Obama's economic-stimulus package. He's staking out admirable centrist ground. It's his fellow Democrats -- and their barely disguised non-economic-stimulus aspirations -- that have me worried. Michael Barone
has similar thoughts. ... BTW: Past Hub Blog rants on Ayn Rand can be found here
. Whittaker Chambers's classic National Review takedown of Rand, and Atlas Shrugged, can be found here
. Next up for WSJ editorial writers: A coming-of-age ode to Catcher in the Rye?
