Continuing Attempt to Condemn Justice Souter's Home

I think this is a wonderful way to illustrate the absurdity of the Supreme Court's Kelo decision giving governments authority to confiscate private property and give it to private developers...especially as we see these kinds of "property transfers" continuing to take place all over the country. (Here is Senator Bill Frist on a case currently under appeal in Ohio.)

Hopefully the states will be taking action to protect private property from continuing to be turned over to private developers.

Update: Friday John McIntyre posted a story at the RCP Blog about a woman in New York whose home is being taken so an Indian casino can expand. I know there are other equally disturbing stories out there. This is truly nothing short of government-sanctioned robbery, and our legislators need to get serious about putting an end to the practice.
