HALFWAY THROUGH ATLAS SHRUGGED COMMENTARY! Yesterday I reached Page 584: halfway to Page 1,168. I have now written 175 pages of commentary on 584 pages of Atlas. I should finish by the end of the year. I am also revising a science fiction novel I finished in 1994. It is in the hands of an actual professional copy editor now. Coming soon to an attachment near you! I am also writing a book about the history of the Cookinham family.

HAMILTON PANEL ON GO TO On Thursday, July 2, I was one of four speakers on a panel discussing Hamilton the man and "Hamilton" the musical. This was on Go To, and was watched by about a hundred members of the Guides Association of New York and the Tour Guides Guild of Washington DC.

ATLAS SHRUGGED COMMENTARY By the end of 2020, I hope to complete a commentary on Atlas Shrugged. I am going through the whole book line by line, making comments. There are three main kinds of things I am looking for. I am making cross references, so you can look up and compare, for example, all of the conversations between Eddie and the track worker that are sprinkled around the book. Second, there are lines in the book that relate to experiences I have had over the years with people who knew Ayn Rand, and in one case, with Rand herself. Third, I point out little touches all over the book that I fear few readers notice or remember. Most readers flew through the book in their teen years, and missed or have since forgotten many little gems. When I finish, send me an email and I will send you my Commentary as an attachment. Free!
