Shareholders are capable of demanding change

Regarding Frank Sterle Jr.’s Jan. 16 letter to the editor. He writes of Boeing’s 737 Max, Big Pharma, et. al. being beholden to shareholders.

Of course, the bottom line is with shareholders. People who produce goods and services rarely have multi-million dollar occupations. I concur wholeheartedly.

One step further; look up the definitions of greed, pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger and sloth. Each of us falls into one or more of these precise meanings. That’s human nature, is it not?
