"I am John Galt," a twenty-something man said and kept walking.
The other was a lady about my mom's age, walking two rat-dogs. "What is that from?"
"A book by Ayn Rand."
"Oh, the Fountainhead? Is he the architect?"
"Atlas Shrugged, actually. Fountainhead is her other famous one."
"Oh. What was the name of the architect...Roark?"
"Yeah, Howard Roark. John Galt set up the capitalist utopia in Galt's Gulch."
We both smiled, and went on our separate ways.
