"I do not recognize anyone's right to one minute of my life. Nor to any part of my energy. Nor to any achievement of mine. . . I am a man who does not exist for others."With that angry soliloquy by Howard Roark in "The Fountainhead," Ayn Rand forever changed the face of American architecture.Her epic characterization of Roark -- the fictional architect who dynamites his own building halfway through construction because others drastically compromised his design -- may have done more to shape public opinion about architecture and those who practice it than decades worth of actual construction.

The preliminary accord calls for the Columbia-based Fountainhead Title Group Corp., one of the state's largest title settlement companies, to pay $2 million in individual reimbursements to about 7,100 customers and shut down as many as 20 "affiliated businesses" accused of either charging homeowners for title work that was never done or double-billing them.

At the close of the last century, Modern Library, the prestige publisher, announced its list of the 100 best novels of the 100 years, as chosen by a panel of top writers and scholars. Not a single work by Ayn Rand made the list. Then, turning the contest into a national parlor game, Modern Library invited ordinary readers to submit their choices. A quarter of a million responded, and presto! Rand's magnum opus, Atlas Shrugged, scored No. 1, and three more Rand novels appeared in the top 10. This news might have brought a contemptuous smile to Ayn Rand's stony face, but for one thing: Her chief competitor was L. Ron Hubbard, who landed three titles on the public's top 10. Hubbard, a marginal writer of science fiction, founded Scientology.
