Letter To The Editor: Response To Don Neeper

"However, in a society modeled on winning—getting ahead—there must be losers."
 
Don Neeper almost gets it right (link). In America, however, this is better said: In a society modeled on getting ahead, there must be those who don't get as far ahead as others.
 
These are not losers; they are just not as big winners. What matters is how you view your circumstances. Wherever you draw the line, American 'losers' are almost all far ahead of Syrian or Libyan losers, to pick two recent examples. You might call this a theory of ordinary relativity.
