Letter: Beaton responds to letter

In Patrick Hunter’s letter to the editor, he suggested that my recent column plagiarized “Atlas Shrugged.” I’m flattered that he would think my work is in the league of Ayn Rand, one of history’s most successful and influential authors.

But for the record, I must correct his erroneous and libelous allegation. I did not plagiarize Ayn Rand or anyone else.

I do encourage people to read “Atlas Shrugged” if they haven’t already. And, if they have time after that, then also read my column that Mr. Hunter generously but mistakenly compared to it.

Glenn K. Beaton
