The big-company-leftism

You leave the world a week alone... and what do you find out when you are back? Quite a lot of things but one being more surprising of the other, the recent supreme court decision in Kelo v. City of New London , No. 04-108 (see also the Washington Post.)

What is the deal? The supreme court (Stevens, Kennedy, Souter, Ginsburg, and Breyer) ok'ed that local governments can seize people's homes and businesses, when they see economic reasons in terms of development to do so and this against the will of the owners.

UPDATE. Here is an interview with a senior attorney of the plaintiffs.
UPDATE II: Souter's House, soon a Hotel?
