News bites -- the sequel

 |  NCR Today

On August 15, I wrote about "News Bites" on my blog.

In today's Los Angeles Times, Stephen Baker, a former senior writer for Business Week and author of "Final Jeopardy: Man vs. Machine and the Quest to Know Everything", reflects on Mitt Romney's August 11 sound byte, "Corporations are people, my friend."

Baker is to be applauded for his civil discourse on what speaks as whom.

Read our new blog series, La Iglesia Hispana, focusing on Hispanic Catholics, the church's new emerging majority.

The fact that Romney defaulted to this statement in his response to a heckler about corporations being people is worth much reflection, reflection that Mr. Baker offers here.

I hope his reflection bites us awake.

I rest my case.
