Third anniversary of Kelo

"Today marks the third anniversary of one of the most outrageous decisions in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court. In Kelo v. City of New London, five black-robed despots ruled that New London, Connecticut, could seize the homes of Suzette Kelo and her neighbors and hand them over to big developers. The decision was a triumph for collectivism, government tyranny, and the capacity of the rich and well-connected to trample the rights of middle-American families."

Maggie,

There is little doubt that this one will go down in history as one of the greatest abuses of the intent of the Founding Fathers in the Constitution.

By the way, I understand that a similar plan was being considered with the entire downtown area of Toledo. Unfortunately ... no developer wanted it.
