Who Is John Galt?

Before I answer the question, "Who is John Galt?"

It's not that I'm paranoid, but I want to draw your attention again to "H.R.1388: To reauthorize and reform the national service laws." It passed the House in a vote of 321 (yays) - 105 (nays) [House Roll Call #140 Details].

It goes to the Senate next.

Please LEARN MORE on this site everything on the site.


Then, learn about "The US President's update of 1404.10 effective immediately on Jan 23 2009."

I'm not going to comment on the above. I'm just shining a flashlight in the forest.

Back to the original topic.

Who is John Galt?

If you know me at all, you know how much I love reading... it's second only to my passion for writing. When a plot and characters are well developed and move the reader forward, when the writer becomes invisible, I truly commend the author.

There are three ways you can get the answer to the question: "Who is John Galt?"

One, you can read the book "Atlas Shrugged" written by Ayn Rand, first published in 1957.

Two, you can google it and check out the Wikipedia information.

Three, you can ask some of the people at the next tea party who might be carrying signs saying simply, "Who is John Galt?"

Needless to say, I Googled first because I kept seeing the question pop up on so many news websites (in the comments sections) ...and I guess it got me curious enough that, well, I just had to know.

Now that I know the answer, I can't wait to read "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand.


Well, I have a confession to make...

I entered NANO WRIMO last November, but then landed in over my head with a couple writing projects that absorbed ALL MY TIME... so I couldn't do it. And I hated missing it. The previous year I managed to complete NANO WRIMO without any trouble, writing very part time.

So, since I missed NANO, I just signed on to Script Frenzie.

It starts on April 1, 2009 and ends April 30, 2009.

That's just ONE tiny month to write a 1,000 word script (t.v., movie or other).

No, I'm not going to do an adaptation.

But, since script writing contains almost all dialogue, and this particular Ayn Rand book appears to contain a great deal of dialogue and monologue... that's perfect prep reading to get my script-writing mind in gear.

So, who is John Galt?

I'm going to let you google for that one.

Until next time... stay tuned!

PS: Okay, if you don't want to google for the answer, you can find out -- Who is John Galt? -- by reading the description for Atlas Shrugged (Cliffs Notes) over at
