In general, corporations don't get charged with crimes, but the people in charge of those corporations do. Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling went to prison over the Enron scandal.

I'm optimistic about the house races at the moment.

It looks quite likely that Michigan is going to legalize marijuana, which is IMO a good thing.

The cashier was making a judgement call which could affect his/her job. Its not an overreaction to make a minor request of a customer if one's job is at stake.

Omaha Steaks sells a package that includes apple 'tartlets'. I don't think that's a word. If a tart is a small pie, does that mean a tartlet is an extra small pie?
