Takings

I try not to pay much attention to political matters, but today's Supreme Court decision in the case of Kelo v. New London is tremendously depressing. As Justice Sandra Day O'Connor observed in her dissent, "The specter of condemnation hangs over all property. Nothing is to prevent the state from replacing any Motel 6 with a Ritz-Carlton, any home with a shopping mall, or any farm with a factory."

The Constitution is dead! Long live the Constitution!
