Atlas Shrugged influence lives on...

Just forwarded an article by Stephen Moore about Atlas Shrugged to a couple people and WSJ informed me of the following:
View the most EMAILED links for today from
1. - Opinion: 'Atlas Shrugged': From Fiction to Fact in 52 Years
2. - Doing the Math to Find the Good Jobs
3. - Opinion: 'Alternative' Medicine Is Mainstream
4. - Opinion: Six Lessons for Investors
5. - Opinion: President Bush Tried to Rein In Fan and Fred
6. - Opinion: Hospital Scrubs Are a Germy, Deadly Mess
7. - Belgians Take Lots of Sick Leave, And Why Not, They're Depressed
8. - Opinion: The Jews Face a Double Standard
9. - Opinion: Yes, Israel Can Win in Gaza
Of course there's a selection bias here with WSJ readers who are more inclined toward free market thoughts, but I like to think that each one emailed a friend or two that had yet to read the book. And just maybe it will make a difference!

Dude, I had to close that article when it started a paragraph with "At the end of the book..." and then I could see quotes by John Galt. SPOILER ALERT!
