Where do I apply to be on a Death Panel?

Okay, I’m back from my extended Xmas/New Year tour of duty with my overextended family, all of whom listen to Rush, Hannity, Beck, and that adorable Michelle Malkin. My revenge? I gave them all got copies of Atlas Shrugged for Xmas. The young ones in the genetic cohort got copies of An Island Called Liberty, a picture book described by its publisher as
A cross between Dr. Seuss and Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged.Younger children will enjoy the rhyming verse and beautiful, full-color illustrations on every page, while older children and adults [presumably Larry Kudlow and Jonah Goldberg] will enjoy the strong message that speaks in favor of free markets and against excessive government regulation, bureaucracy, and taxation.

They all have been warned they will be quizzed in detail about their reading at the next Easter feaster. This is, after all, in my own rational self-interest.
