How will the lovely Pamela -- Pajamastan's favorite Randian -- cope with this news? Presumably by launching further diatribes against her nemesis -- a pudgy, fashion-challenged, middle-aged man whom she describes as a "little girl", then a few sentences later as a "woman" (that was one quick puberty, that was!).
