Letter to NYTimes explaining 1st amendment...

...people peaceably assemling.

Chicago Monday PM 7 February 2011


A New York Times Editorial of Saturday 5 February refers to the United States Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling as “unleashing corporate money into politics....”

Since Times' editorials have referenced the First Amendment to the United States Constitution at least twice in just the past 30 days, could we expect you to have some familiarity with the the part where it says “Congress shall make no law... abridging... the right of the people peaceably to assemble?” What is a corporation other than people peaceably assembling, spending group money or not?
