    And hopefully will find time to write about this week, is the complete disregard (through lack of serious discussion in the decision, although it may be in the underlying briefing somewhere) of the potential impact of this decision on one of the most fundamental common law ideas in business law:

    That a corporation is a legally separate entity from its founders, with a legal veil between them that should never be piercable offensively by the principals/founders (i.e. the argument that a corporation is the same as its principals, such that the founders may extend their personal rights to the corporate entity in this fashion), but only by someone whose rights have been victimized by the corporation such that reaching the founders/principals is the only way to do justice.  

    Maybe this is discussed somewhere in the decision, which I admittedly have not had time yet to read? Surely, HHS must have raised this argument in some form...........

    At this point, I just want America to admit that it still doesn't want its Black citizens to live in any state other than terror, subservience and inferiority, under pain of death. I can handle American racism, but I can't handle American denial.
