Good find, Ted. My hat's off to you.

I had searched for this before, but had never found it. What's so important about the Donahue interviews of Rand is that folks get to see her "human side." They get to see -- with their own eyes -- what Donahue describes in his introduction of her:

... a warm human being who has a lot to say and comes straight at everything she says ...
Peikoff said the same about her, but I'm not sure that critics take him seriously. It must mean more for potential critics of her to see her interact well with others. After all, the critics can always say that Peikoff, when speaking about Rand's maturity and respect for others, that Peikoff is merely idolizing her -- rather than presenting an objective view of her.

Now, they can see it with their own eyes: she was respectful, benevolent, wise, and mature (and loved ideas). She was a truly wonderful human being.

30 years later, everyone can see just how right she was.  That woman (who needlessly insulted Rand) worried about "conglomerates," GM, etc., can now see those bodies were crushed under their own weight.
