Preparedness Notes for Wednesday — February 2, 2022

February 2nd is the birthday of Ayn Rand (born Alisa Zinov’yevna Rosenbaum in 1905), died – March 6, 1982) She is of course remembered for her novel Atlas Shrugged, which is considered a Libertarian classic. While I sharply disagree with her views on religion (since she was an atheist), I admire both her skill as a writer and her ability to articulate some core precepts of human liberty.

UPDATE: The first batch of 1,000 waterproof SurvivalBlog archive USB sticks sold out quickly, and they’ve all now been mailed out. The second batch of 600 sticks (now in transit to the family that handles our order fulfillment) is pre-selling very quickly.  There are now just 190 available for ordering. Order yours, soon. Mailings of the second batch should begin on or about February 8th.
