Dan Walters of the Sacramento Bee writes about reaction in California to the Kelo Supreme Court decision.
There was recently a troubling eminent domain case here in Orange County, in which the city of Cypress took away a church's land to give it to a Costco, reasoning that the Costco's tax contributions would be worth more to the city than the services a church might provide. (The case was ultimately settled with a land swap.) The Kelo case will surely invite more of the same.
