Making the Rounds

This quote, which I saw at Opinio Juris, The Greatest Quote Ever, and half a dozen other blogs, is certainly making the rounds:

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: “The Lord of the Rings” and “Atlas Shrugged.” One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.
