A Little Light Reading for the Guv

Yesterday, Jon recommended the Governor read a good book during recovery, while subtly linking to a suggestion.

However, that pick may be a bit too much of a tome for someone not bound to be down very long.  I suggest the shorter "Anthem," for a novella-like quick grasp of Objectivism and anti-socialistic economics.  

If the Guv is not prone to Rand, perhaps "Economics in One Lesson" would serve him well heading into 2007, especially prior to considering any additional bonded indebtedness.

Any other suggestions?

    Mega Dittos regarding Ms. Ayn Rand’s work. Perhaps
    the movie version of her novel, “The Fountainhead” star-
    ring Patricia Neal and Gary Cooper would also suit the
    1st Patient.
