In the current issue of Blades On Ice, there is a three pager on Quebec figure skater Joannie Rochette, where they talk about her improvement in English. As proof of this, she reaches into her handbag and pulls out a copy of The Fountainhead, adding "I'm really enjoying it".
We can walk aour roads together, if our goals are all the same. We can run alone and free, if we pursue a different aim.

Man, to go through what she did, losing her mother to a heart attack just 2 days before competing in the Olympics, and ultimately winning a Bronze medal for her country on homesoil, really has been an inspiration for millions. And read her comments on The Fountainhead at the end of the article.

Rochette's performances at the Vancouver Olympics were a couple of major highlights of the games. It is wonderful to see this promising young woman reading Ayn Rand's novels, and publicly praising the philosophy.

Ah...the virtue of selfishness indeed. Go to this link: NY Times article Mother wanted her to think of herself first because she wanted her to be strong. Well, look where that strength brought her.

As you can guess by my avitar, I met her in person in Calgary. Mentioned to her that I read The Fountainhead when I was 19, and she responds "Yes, it was really challenging for a French person".
