Poetic Justice

Randy Meyer sent me this and I haven't stopped laughing since:

Weare, New Hampshire (PRWEB) 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.

Justice Souter's vote in the "Kelo vs. City of New London" decision allows city governments to take land from one private owner and give it to another if the government will generate greater tax revenue or other economic benefits when the land is developed by the new owner.

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."

Absolutely brilliant.

Whee... you think that's bad. I got an email from Andrew Sullivan, who will be taking over my fledgling blog in order to put it to better Public Use. For compensation, I'll be turned into an obscure link at the Institute for Justice.

I hope they vote to turn over the house. Probably not likely, though.

My father-in-law, who's very conservative and we usually don't agree on issues (except this one), enjoyed it as well. Was nice! I personally would like to see this happen!

This is silly. Souter lives in the DC area. I'm sure that he'd be happy for some idiot to take whatever property he owns in New Hampshire off his hands. At the right price, of course.

That's great. I pray it happens.
