1) CORPORATIONS ARE HUMAN!! REALLY?
Like people, corporations can:
Be born or incorporate.
Have feelings. This is a tender offer.
Get angry in a hostile takeover.
Go through adolescence in an emerging technology.
Have sex. Think of all the shareholders, customers and vendors large corporations have screwed.
Get married. They call it a merger.
Have children. Called a spin-off.
Get divorced. It’s a corporate breakup.

Martin’s Memoir, Through Brooklyn Eyes
This memoir starts out as the story of a boy, Martin Stolzenberg, growing up in a Jewish working class family in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, in the 1940s and 1950s. This is a highly readable, personal story because Martin’s world view is seen through the prism of his Brooklyn years, even though he is long gone from those growing up times. It becomes an adventure, filled with the recollections of truly humorous, sad and poignant events. You are introduced to the most important people in his life. Each of these characters has a chapter in which you observe the impact on the author and read about some of their own journeys. He even meets a few well known people along the way. There are interesting life lessons, rich in insights that can be meaningful to all of us. You will alternately laugh and sigh when you read this memoir and want to recommend it to others.
