Garbage and Gravitas | The Nation

An interesting essay on Ayn Rand that does a really good job of analyzing her work in the context of her own biography. There's also a good take down of her faux-Aristotelian logical system. The arguments weaken when the author tries to draw parallels between Rand and the Nazis, and goes completely off the rails when poor Nietzsche is dragged into the discussion as a proto-fascist straw man.
