What's Up .Doc?

When did people become 'that' instead of 'who'? It's one of my longstanding PGPs (pet grammar peeves). I know it's nit-picky, but hey, that's what I do!  I ask you, can we please let people get back to being people, and let cars, phones and other inanimate objects be the things referred to as that? Not everyone agrees with me, and apparently, there is a long history of acclaimed writers who have used that to refer to people.  Grammar Girl discusses their point. What do you think?
