I don't think that's quite right, Moose.

I believe the so-called "personhood of corporations" was established by several 
high court decisions. Of course, those can be over-ruled, but I think that, as 
Constitutional interpretations, it would take a lot more than legislative 
action to do away with them.

After large expenditures of federal, state, and county funds; after much 
confusion generated by detours and road blocks; after greatly annoying the 
surrounding population with noise, dust, and fumes, the previously existing 
traffic jam is relocated by one half-mile. -- Alan Deitz
