Letter to Chicago Tribune; Are corporations people?

Chicago AM 20 January 2012

Chicago Tribune, Voice of the People:

The Chicago Tribune's columnist Jonah Goldberg on Thursday 19 January quotes Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens: "Corporations have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires." What did Justice Stevens think the United States Constitution's first amendment meant by saying: “Congress shall make no law... abridging... the right of the people peaceably to assemble...?” Are corporations anything other than people peaceably assembling?
