Analogies are good!
President Obama used a helpful analogy when explaining why a public health insurance option won't be a "government takeover" of the healthcare system or put insurance companies out of business. He reminded us that we have great examples of state sponsored colleges and universities which have not taken over higher education or ruined private universities.
If this analogy is lost on the general public, then how about our system of government funded libraries? I don't think libraries have ruined the bookselling business.
