  • Wow, feminist entitlement meets dating. If I’d adopted that Platonic soulmate approach, Paul would have been rejected because he can’t grow a beard. (Sad but true! I console myself by gazing longingly at Wolverine’s sideburns from time to time.)
  • Reporter fired for believing in objective reality. Seriously. “In an e-mail statement, editor Matthew Cardinale says Springston was asked to leave [Atlanta Progressive News] last week ‘because he held on to the notion that there was an objective reality that could be reported objectively, despite the fact that that was not our editorial policy at Atlanta Progressive News.’” That’s straight out of Atlas Shrugged … except that Ayn Rand couldn’t have imagined something so insane.
  • Hooray! With the help of the good folks at the Objectivist Club Network, Rational Jenn is launching an Atlanta Objectivist Society.
  • Awesome news: “More than 65,000 19th-century works of fiction from the British Library’s collection are to be made available for free downloads by the public from this spring. Owners of the Amazon Kindle, an ebook reader device, will be able to view well known works by writers such as Charles Dickens, Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy, as well as works by thousands of less famous authors.” Oh, and guess who’s funding it? Not tax dollars stolen from productive people … but honestly-earned dough from Microsoft. So it’s all-around awesome.
