De Lorean's Fall
To the Editors:
The John De Lorean story [Nov. 1] has a haunting quality that goes beyond the personal tragedy. He may be typical of the best, and possibly the worst, in the free-enterprise system's hustle for success. Others, including some astute corporations, have been succumbing with alarming frequency to overwhelming pressures and strains that have caused them to spin out of control like De Lorean.

Many businessmen have gone under after decades of success. I lost my home, career and pension. Unlike De Lorean, most of us started again from scratch without resorting to the drug trade.
