::Got it. Thanks.  Of course.  Strangely, I saw the humor in the part about overcoming the writer's limitations, but not in the cut-up part - because I thought it was serious.  Hey, I don't mind people making fun of Rand, although it seems like poor sport, as she can't respond any more, but I wouldn't want this article to confuse someone about the history of cut-up techniques and history.  Maybe if the word "cut-up" was linked to an intermediary "that was a joke" page that then links to, say, William Burroughs, whoever inspired him, and perhaps even the Beatles (who used cut-up tapes on ''...Mr. Kite'' and ''Yellow Submarine'', at least).  or at least then to a page about cut-up.  Now, where was I reading about it?  Hopefully not on Wikipedia, that would all be liberal nonsense.  Maybe it was in a book review in [[The Nation]]?

"Rand has also been noted for her pioneering work in the use of the Cut-Up technique, used to great effect in the speeches of Atlas Shrugged" Is this really true? I was reading about cut-up the other day and no mention of Rand was made. It would certainly explain those speeches unreadability, however. Human 22:18, 23 April 2007 (EDT)

I think that whole paragraph is intended a joking criticism of her. RSchlafly 22:43, 23 April 2007 (EDT)
