Nothing Personal, It's Just a Business Decision

This matter of corporate personhood is deeply offensive to me. They're not people, and a lot of them are monsters. The title line could be a reference to mass firings, an industrial disaster, avoidance of and lobbying against regulations, or any number of other issues. In this particular case, it's a reference to a juvenile detention center— privately owned, of course— that refused to allow two Reverends, one of whom was dressed as Santa Clause, to deliver presents to 35 detained children.

Yeah, it's Great Britain, but the corporate sense of, and respect for, humanity transcends national boundaries.
