Eminent domain threatens the wealthy
see "Lawsuits in eminent domain fight over suburban golf club" (NY Newsday, 3/7/06)
In a stunning example of political ego, the mayor of North Hills, NY, a small and very wealthy town on Long Island, is discussing the possibility of trying to take the Deepdale Golf Club, one of the nation's finest, through eminent domain.
If North Hills has the ability to recall the mayor, I hope they do it.
Even more so, I hope that another Kelo-like case is accepted by the Supreme Court and that Anthony Kennedy realizes the truly historic error he made, allowing the court to right one of the worst wrongs it's ever made.
