Go Galt or Shut Up

Did anyone else see the article on Wired, "Man Scrawls World's Biggest Message With GPS 'Pen'"?  Nick Newcomen, the gentleman who created the GPS message, said, "The main reason I did it is because I am an Ayn Rand fan. [...] In my opinion if more people would read her books and take her ideas seriously, the country and world would be a better place — freer, more prosperous and we would have a more optimistic view of the future.”  Umm, okay, but if you're driving on publically-funded highways to scrawl your Objectivist message, isn't your point lost just a little bit?
