We agree!

From a letter to the editor of the Queens Tribune, written by Lenny Rodin of Forest Hills:

...the worst decision the Supreme Court has made in the past few years was Kelo v. New London where the court ruled 5-4 that states and localities could use the power of eminent domain to take over private property for the benefit of private developers. You can see the result of that in Willets Point and Brooklyn, where the city is trying to take over property for private uses. It is ironic that the four justices who voted in the minority against this power grab were the four most conservative judges who liberals love to hate.
