15. Co. That Helped Kill NYC Firefighters Named After Her Hero
The end of the New York Times article mentions that one of the heros in Ayn Rand's book was John Galt. The company that was completing the demolition of the Deutsche Bank building next to the World Trade Center site was the John Galt Corp, named after him. That company is being blamed for creating conditions that resulted in an out of control fire in the building last month, that killed NYC firefighters. Among other violations, there was no water available in the building - the standpipe was disconnected.

I guess that company was carrying out the Rand's concept that selfishness is a virtue.
