Kelo Is Bulldozing All Over

One location ready for eminent domain takings for the immediate benefit of developers is in Lodi, NJ. Reports the Institute for Justice (the folks that lost Kelo but have won many other cases against government encroachments):

Save Our Homes, a coalition of 200 residents in a Lodi trailer park targeted by the City for private retail development and a senior-living community, goes to court on July 18 to try to prevent a private developer from taking their homes. Lodi Mayor Gary Paparozzi called the Kelo ruling a “shot in the arm” for the town. He told the Bergen County Record, “The trailer park is like a poster child for redevelopment. That’s the best-case scenario for using eminent domain.”

Is it OK because trailer parks are associated with poor white people? Go to ILJ and see the other places around the country where homes will be razed thanks to Kelo.

In light of the Kelo decision, the blog might revisit the battle over windmills off the cost of Cape Cod (or wherever).

The liberal proponents of the decision might not think it entirely virtuous. Bill
