Dagny’s return from paradise

Atlas Shrugged – Day 077 – pp. 832-841 “The buildings seemed worn by weeks of summer heat, but the people seemed worm by centuries of anguish.” Dagny’s back in the Big Apple. Apparently things have gone down hill in just the last month. These ten pages are more or less catch up so I’m just […]
