I learned that corporate "personhood" wasn't in the original Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad Company case, but was mysteriously slipped in by a legal clerk.

i've posted on a few different boards. but i've definitely had my mind changed on certain issues. the one that comes to mind is i was convinced to change my position on the AWB because it was shown to me that the law was vague, inconsistent and ineffectual.
but... i am sorry they didn't retain parts of it. (like the part that limited the type of clips someone could purchase).
