To the editor:

Now we have the stimulus plan. It will take us one giant step toward socialism. We are led to believe this gamble will be the perfect panacea, that “magic pill” to cure all of our ills. I believe it may bankrupt us, while producing expensive and mediocre results.

I compare this plan, which is loaded with unrelated pork, to buying an expensive used car (in as-is condition) by mail order.
