Kelo and Souter's Farm
I totally disagreed with Kelo and that trend in the use of eminent domain to take private property and give it to another private party in the guise of a general "public use." When the hotel idea was brought up, I thought it was a funny attempt to grab media attention about the issue. Now, it looks like they are serious. I think this is going a little overboard. I disagree with Justice Souter's vote in the case, but I don't think that it deserves reprisal. Justice Souter was doing his job to the best of his ability. I think he screwed up, but I don't think he should be personally punished for it. It sets a bad precedent. Judges and Justices should be allowed to do their jobs and not worry about popular opinion. That's why we insulated them from facing election.
Plus, we should keep Souter happy. Hopefully, he'll retire soon to that farm. Taking it from him will just anger him and keep him on the Court for years.
