My “JhnGalt” Vanity License Plate

So I received a call a few weeks ago from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation regarding my “JhnGalt” vanity license plate. The official asked if I had ordered a vanity license plate. I replied, “Yes.”

Then, she asked me, “Who is John Galt?” I almost burst out laughing hysterically.

I replied, “a character from a book.” She asked what book? I replied “Atlas Shrugged.” The mischief this license plate will create has already begun. Every time someone pulls up behind me, they will ask themselves, “Who is John Galt?” If a police officer ever pulls me over, and asks me, “Sir, who is John Galt?” I may need to call one of my attorney friends to get me out of involuntary commitment due to my inability to stop laughing.

I was kinda hoping they would deny the plate so I could get standing and sue on First Amendment grounds. Although I haven’t yet received the plate, they cashed my check, which is a pretty good indication the plate was approved.

Oh well. Who is John Galt?

    I’ll reserve judgment on your plate protest until you’re stopped for driving on the wrong side of the road.
