Marjorie Kelly, editor of Business Ethics magazine, wrote a book a few years ago that addresses this issue pretty well. It's called "The Divine Right of Capital".

Friends,
I'm sure we have an history buff who can put a time on it, but I recall 
sitting in on Leighton Leighty's & Dan Bronstein's env law class at MSU 
where I learned that "way back then"  our country decided to give legal 
standing to corporations.  Certainly, it changed the dynamics of our lives 
in many ways.  But I have to agree with Carol and thanks Tom for the clear 
picture of the difference between impacts on real people and companies.

It is time we consider pushing for a delineating line by pushing our 
elected folks to make it law!!

Thanks again Tom!
Regards,
Chuck
