Kelo and Redevelopment

I was trying to avoid any comment on the recent Kelo decision by the Supreme Court, since everyone seems to have already said what needs to have been said about it. But, once again, one of my favorite columnists, Dan Weintraub, wrote a great commentary on the decision with some history of redevelopment attempts in California. It kinda had me wondering what the Eureka, and other local city councils, might have on their mind for the future.

Good read. I know that grubby pols have used eminent domain for shady uses. Nature of the beast. Having the supreme court back them up is what reeks.

It's going to be up to the states to pass legislation protecting private property now. One wonders if there's any interest in the Democratic majority in Sacramento to get the ball rolling? If only the Republicans push the issue, it would be iffy if such legislation would get off the ground.
