    At last...Some good news.

    Why is this singularly useful event being held anywhere near Arizona? I never met Ms. Rand, but her books changed my life, as a teenager. And, she is at the top of my list of people that I would have most liked to have known. I'd like to believe that she would be disapointed in this choice of "venue": In my imagination, I presume to believe that she never "suffered fools, gladly" and likely thought even less of smarmy, mindless, sycophantic political dilattantes; and, I suspect that she would have given Arizona - in light of current events - little to no consideration, beyond consternation.

    If this works out, perhaps someone will take it on the road. I'd pay to participate.
