Ayn Rand vs. Laissez-Faire?

From the Washington Times:

A thought for the day: Russian-born American novelist and screenwriter Ayn Rand said,

“Disunity, that’s the trouble. It’s my absolute opinion that in our complex industrial society, no business enterprise can succeed without sharing the burden of the problem with other enterprises.”

Fact is Ayn Rand never said that–or would ever say such a thing. The actual quote is from a fictional character–Orren Boyle– a villain in Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged.
