Ayn Rand would have been 100 yesterday

I had a beer and was generally selfish yesterday, I'm sure Ayn would have been pleased.

There is a surprisingly even handed article about her in the New York Times (free registration if you take the two minutes to do so)

Is there any author out there today as influential as Ayn Rand? Probably not, although there are some authors who push a simmilair agenda and blend fiction and ideology together in a pleasingly individualistic manner. Terry Goodkind is one, if you care for the fantasy genre. His last several novels have been literary polemics against collectivism and pacificism.
