Who is John Galt? 

I meet people when I wear this T shirt. Today, in half an hour, two people talked to me. (A third meowed at me, but I'm not sure what that was about)

"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."

"That's right."

We both smiled, and went on our separate ways.
