metro pulse on eminent domain

Check out this unsigned commentary that appeared in Metro Pulse last week.

It tries to make the case that the recent Supreme Court decision opening the door for private property to be taken for the purpose of private, for-profit development is a Very Good Thing, taking the tone that anyone who opposes the decision simply doesn't understand the issue.

Interstingly, Metro Pulse is owned/published/edited by a very prominent local, private developer.

You really ought to read it more carefully. And what would you to to make the McClung Warehouses so they don't fall down, make them public buildings? They made a good point. It has to have a public purpose, and the Kelo decision did not.
