LA Times today published a story:
Prosecutors say they can avoid court trials by paying $355 to a private company for an educational program. The irony is not lost on the anti-corporate activists, who see it as patronizing.
Please don't miss this excellent overview and commentary on this horrible subject:
"Perhaps Mr. Carter should just on with it and suggest that free speech that he finds egregious may be costly for the citizen. Maybe we can just privatize free speech all together, since corporations are people, and anyone who speaks out in a way that offends the corporate Gods will be charged before speaking, thus saving us all of this pesky funneling of money to private entities at the end."
