I've been in Los Angeles for several days, doing research in the archives at the Ayn Rand Institute (photo at left from their web site). I was looking through her papers, searching for evidence I can use for an article on her attitude toward Nietzsche (the evidence, it turns out, is hard to fit together). I also had lunch with the great Eddie Fitzgerald at Lido Pizza in Van Nuys. Two exciting experiences! I'll try to blog about them upon my return.
Just thought I should explain why I have been inactive for several days.
