Good Landing!

Pilots Dr. Steve Morse (R) and Joe Lawrence (L) make a landing in Joe's Cessna on a very short grass runway on a very small island after our non-stop flight from Peachtree City, GA to remote Dog Island, FL (near Apalachicola, FL). We put the Cessna in a full-flap, steep dive final approach landing just above stall speed on the small airstrip. Our fishing poles and coolers barely fit in the plane. The fishing was very good in Florida.

Absolutely, the best novel I have ever read.  Atlas Shrugged written by Ayn Rand, published in 1957 will cause the reader to test the courage of your convictions, the roots of the human spirit, and the value of freedom, personal responsibility and free enterprise.  A great fiction thriller that has uncanny parallels to today's political and economic environment.  Recently ranked as the second most influential novel written in the 20th century.

For more information on Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead, both by Ayn Rand, go to
The Atlas Society home page.  But you must take the oath of John Galt.

The second best novel I have ever read, The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, written in 1952 portrays the importance of individualism and the true purpose of the human spirt.
