Does anyone have a transcript of Nathaniel Branden’s speech “Thank You Ayn Rand, and Goodbye”? It was apparently given at Reason’s Tenth Anniversary Banquet in November of 1978. (Was it later published as an article in Reason?) The only bit of it that I could dig up was this quote:

Don’t expect anything of her as a person. Don’t expect help. Don’t expect understanding. Don’t expect sympathy. Don’t even expect sanity. Say, ‘Thank you,’ and let go.

Um, wow. That’s a pretty clear statement by itself, but I’d like to see the full context.
