Brangelina, Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged & Twitter?

I Twittered this earlier and it seemed people were both interested and previously unaware of this podcast from On The Media.

Beginning with the rumor of the upcoming Brangelina movie of Atlas Shrugged, Brooke Gladstone explores the effect of Ayn Rand's objectivism in modern society and discusses some of Rand's personal struggles. Rand's failures in personal relationships remind us that the issues she wrote about and the philosophy she developed were the logical outcomes of her own internal conflicts.

Photo: Macaw at Greer Family Fest

macaw 6763

I think this is a Blue and Gold Macaw. I saw it perched on a freckled girl's shoulder at the Greer Family Fest. The bird's owner said that she (the bird) was seven years old. I thought it made for a nice shot so I squeezed off a few frames.
