As a birthday present Molly gave me a cool column on that recent Supreme Court decision about eminent domain. I stayed out of discussion of it because I couldn't quite articulate why it seemed wrong; she does a lovely job here. And then, there's this paragrah
The justice who nailed this one was Sandra Day O'Connor, bless her. She wrote in dissent: "The beneficiaries are likely to be those citizens with disproportionate influence and power in the political process, including large corporations and development firms. As for the victims, the government now has license to transfer property from those with fewer resources to those with more. The Founders cannot have intended this perverse result."
Yes, definitely an iron.
