Today's Supreme Court decision which enables local governments to take private property under "eminent domain" and give it to private developers has me upset for two reasons:

  1. That the Supreme Court somehow believes that local governments exercise proper prudence and restraint in giving private developers a big wet kiss. It's not like there's corruption in local governments (cough San Diego cough).

  2. I actually agree with Scalia and Thomas, who were among the dissenters.

I strongly agree and have been surprised to find myself sometimes aligned, to a greater or lesser degree, with Justice Thomas lately. Not that you could say our politics are similar in the least.

George Will wrote a good bit about the politics of the current court in the context of modern rhetoric. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/06/08/AR2005060800352.html

Man, and a good George Will column to boot, my whole world is upside down :)
