From Krugman to Caped Crusaders

Nobel laureate Paul Krugman reports this remark in his NY Times op ed column:

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

This comes from Kung Fu Monkey, posted by John Rogers who writes RPGs and links to Mutants and Masterminds in his blog links.
