leonel: Capitol Hill

Ah, that explains it. Yeah, Capitol Hill; you'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy in Seattle.

We were told this would happen if gay marriage became legal.

A corporation is, fundamentally, a group of people. The concept of a corporate person -a centuries-old legal understanding, if not necessarily the common understanding- is to enable that group of people to act with the same rights as any of its constituent members. Undoing this doctrine requires a major rewrite of pretty much all corporate law.

A building is not a group of people. That's the fundamental difference, and it makes all the difference.

This is not a good thing.

I give it six months, tops. She will be disillusioned by the huge age difference, and the fact that her husband is, let's face it, not exactly structurally secure for the types of relations she's going to expect.

Eventually she'll turn to the doors of some young, glass and steel behemoth for comfort. It won't mean anything, since the recession the young'un is all flash and no cash. He'll be empty inside.

Still, she'll leave her well-intentioned but woefully mismatched and solid husband for the shiny new toy.

Only to realize she means less than nothing to him once that brand new lease gets signed by a hot young company with burgeoning assets amply displayed.

She'll end up flitting from meaningless relationships with convenience stores, Wal-marts, and warehouses, lamenting the elderly security she once had.

Finally she'll shack up with a taco hut and spawn a new generation of needy Quonset huts.

Mark my words.

But does the BUILDING want to marry her, is the next question. If the building can knowingly and voluntarily consent, then I have no problem with this.

She does realize it's been over 100 years since her hubby-to-be had an erection, right?
