«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.»

Thanks for this one goes

to my 9th grade history teacher,

John David Cofield.
