I'm damned tired of putting up with the stupidity that I see, and much more impatient than I ever was before. I first read Rand when I was sixteen, and decided then that I was Objectivist, and do still consider myself an Objectivist today. Nevertheless, I still see what I consider many inconsistencies of opinion and interpretation within the Objectivist community, that I would like to be able to reconcile. That is why I joined ROR. My taste in literature tends towards hard sci-fi, mostly works from a handful of authors I trust for cutting edge science and creative ideas. I am married to a wonderful, intelligent & creative woman. I have two grown children, and one ex wife. I have owned and operated my own business for the past 24 years, and survived through two (and hopefully soon through three) difficult recessions.

A woman, while at the funeral of her own mother, met a guy whom she did not know. She thought this guy was amazing.  She believed him to be her drea... (Read More)
