military justice is to justice
John Maynard Keynes is to F. A. Hayek
“I Love Lucy” is to “Much Ado about Nothing”
Pat Robertson is to Mother Teresa
a shipload of gravel is to the Rock of Gibraltar
Reader’s Digest is to Tolstoy’s War and Peace
rap music is to classical music
vultures are to bluebirds
a velvet Elvis is to the Mona Lisa
rape is to love
