that spin? Ayn Rand would not demand anything from Rothbard or his wife. He was never a significant or important personality for her or his followers. But Ayn did personally argue with von Mises whose books she advertized.
Rothbard's wife made a mistake to argue with Ayn Rand about god but could not impress anybody with her mediocre reasoning. So JoAnn felt assaulted, her husband too (but mostly that his anarchism did not stick.)
