Ed Snider isn't the only Ayn Rand fanatic with a flawed business model

OK, OK, Ed Snider's Flyers are surely profitable, and -- as some commenters will quickly point out if I don't -- he does some praiseworthy philanthropic work in the community.

But you have to read the amazing story of the CEO who based his entire business model on Ayn Rand == and destroyed one of America's once great companies, Sears.
