Are you kidding me?

“Justice Sandra Day O’Connor asked New
London’s lawyer, Wesley Horton, whether the city could condemn a Motel 6 so it
could be replaced with a Ritz-Carlton. He agreed the city held such powers, but
disputed the homeowners’ claim that upholding the Fort Trumbull plan would
presage a wave of condemnation activity nationwide. Condemnations cost money, he
said, and city councils are accountable to their local voters.” – WSJ

Again, as I said yesterday, it
is not the government’s place to take from Peter to give to Paul. Let the free
market work!
