Atlas Shrugged on display

According to a recent email from the Ayn Rand Center, Borders and Waldenbooks will soon have floor displays featuring Atlas Shrugged in several hundred of their stores. This is undoubtedly in response to the explosion in sales of Atlas, which have tripled this year. Barnes and Noble recently did the same thing at many of its stores.

This being the case, I may have to consider amending my personal policy considering Borders and Waldenbooks, which I have been boycotting ever since they refused to carry the April/May, 2006 issue of Free Inquiry for publishing the so-called "Mohammed cartoons". Their craven act of cowardice showed them to be no friends of the freedom of speech and press.

I may actually get around to dropping in at the Borders on NW Expressway to see if they have a display, and it will be interesting to see if there is a display at the Waldenbooks in Penn Square Mall - it doesn't even have a philosophy section!
