NPR had a segment today on Nobel economist Hayek, with some commentary from Cafe Hayek's Don Boudreaux.

Yesterday Ayn Rand was featured.

Even a blind pig finds an acorn every now and then.

NPR Reporter - what a shocking discovery my fellow NPR snobs -- it turns out that there are intelligent writers with different opinions than us that we have never heard of!

NPR Editor - need to shut this down ASAP.

After finally getting around to watching "Atlas Shrugged" yesterday, I have no interest in anything Ayn Rand wrote or had to say. Worst crime of all: it was boring.

It was a low budget movie and required that one pay attention to the words and ideas. But I do not think that it was boring. And neither did my 11-year old son, who wanted me to take him to the next movie so that he could find where the producers were going or what John Galt looked like.

Perhaps you could not follow the ideas properly because you are not well versed in minarchist arguments. My kids have no problem on that front because they grew up on Jeff Riggenbach commentaries and audio-book readings. You might try to figure out the subject matter before you dismiss it.
