the power of analogies

From Lawrence Lessig, of Stanford Law, in a q&a on downloading copyrighted music: “The RIAA is the Recording Industry Association of America. It is not the Recording Industry and Artists Association of America. It says its concern is artists. That’s true, in just the sense that a cattle rancher is concerned about its cattle. “

From a reader’s letter on nonsmokers’ rights in today’s Kansas City Star: “Requesting a nonsmoking section in a restaurant is like asking for the nonurine section in a pool.”
