Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" turns 60 years old today.

I was around 12 years old when I first read it and can say that the book opened my eyes and changed my life.

I still look at people in the news and try to assign characters from the book to them.

One does not have to look very far to find a James Taggart or Wesley Mouch.

Finding a Hank Reardon or Dagny Taggart is a little tougher these days.

    I used to think elon musk was a hank reardon, but he’s definitely out of touch and I’m wondering when this thing is going to turn out to be an enron.

    I doubt Hank Reardon would be drinking whiskey and answering reddit AMAs with everyone. This man is off his rocker.
