Pert said more recently that he rejects Rand now.

She was a horrible person (died friendless on medicare) and poor writer, but wrote Shrugged when top marginal income rates were ~90% vs current 35% (or effective 23%), so it was a different time (still nonsense then, but more silly for fans in today's world)
