The other day, I said:
iTunes has Atlas Shrugged (Part 1) for rent. Is it worth $4 to find out whether it’s as awful as everyone says?
This was on Twitter, but was forwarded to Facebook – where one of my Facebook friends (a former cow-orker) decided to post a rabid anti-Ayn Rand comment.
Huh? That wasn’t the conversation I was hoping for.
I responded, trying to steer things back to the movie; he responded with further rabid anti-Ayn Rand rantage; I composed & deleted a number of responses before finally deciding the situation was hopeless. I deleted the post, and its comments.
