The Stench of Irony

Remember the Supreme Court decision last week to allow states to seize property from one private owner and give it to another private owner all in the name of economic development?

And remember who the justices in the majority were? Stevens, Kennedy, Ginsburg, Breyer and Souter.

Well, the Honorable David Souter just might lose his land because of the decision.

Could a hotel be built on the land owned by Supreme Court Justice
David H. Souter? A new ruling by the Supreme Court which was supported
by Justice Souter himself itself might allow it. A private developer
is seeking to use this very law to build a hotel on Souter's land.


[...]

On Monday June 27, Logan Darrow Clements, faxed a request to Chip
Meany the code enforcement officer of the Towne of Weare, New
Hampshire seeking to start the application process to build a hotel
on 34 Cilley Hill Road. This is the present location of Mr.
Souter's home.

Clements, CEO of Freestar Media, LLC, points out that the City of Weare
will certainly gain greater tax revenue and economic benefits with a
hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road than allowing Mr. Souter to own the land.

The proposed development, called "The Lost Liberty Hotel" will feature
the "Just Desserts Café" and include a museum, open to the public,
featuring a permanent exhibit on the loss of freedom in America.
Instead of a Gideon's Bible each guest will receive a free copy of
Ayn Rand's novel "Atlas Shrugged."

    Yeah, we should all get advance reservations. In case he needs to prove how much business or tax revenue he can generate.
