Neo-Galtism

I had a meeting in Denver yesterday, so I took a quick roundtrip over and back flight. On the way back yesterday afternoon, I wound up sitting next to an acquaintance from another lifetime ago and we got caught up on each other’s lives. As we once did, we talked about our families, ourselves and…
