On this day in 1905 Alissa Rosenbaum was born in the city of Saint Petersburg in the Russian Empire. The Russian Empire was overthrown by a pack of predatory animals called the Communist Party. Miss Rosenbaum then escaped from the Soviet Union and upon becoming an American citizen adopted the name of Ayn Rand.
Oh, she also wrote some books.
UPDATE 1100 CDT:
Harry Binswanger, an associate of Ayn Rand has put up a site to commemorate this day.
