Writers on the Range: If corporations are people, what are they really like?

June 3, 2012

ExxonMobil spits out a gob of chewing-tobacco juice and taps a baseball bat against the cleats of its shoes, knocking off the dirt clods. Then "Exx 'Em" — as the fans like to call their slugger — steps into the batter's box and slams the first pitch over the center-field wall of Dodger Stadium.

Meanwhile, Victoria's Secret — who likes to be called Vikki — is elbow-deep in stinky compost in a Denver garden, preparing to plant zucchinis, while Yahoo sits alone in a Seattle park, getting high on marijuana to avoid thinking about how it lost so much market share to Google.

Commissioners back effort to overturn high court ruling

January 4, 2012

The Pueblo County commissioners on Tuesday gave unanimous support to a resolution to amend the U.S. Constitution, specifically to overturn the controversial 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision that set aside all federal limits on corporate spending in elections.

The commissioners took the step at the request of a local group, Pueblo Move to Amend, which is trying to organize local support for a national amendment. A dozen or so supporters were on hand at the commissioners' meeting to applaud their vote.
