Hark to the bark. Snark in the dark.
Come on, lose those blues and greens!

Coming Soon to a City Near You....
Let's be clear. The Kelo decision didn't mandate that cities use eminent domain for all sorts of things, it just said they could. Some are, some aren't. Say hello to Riviera Beach, FL.

Riviera Beach is a town that's on the north side of West Palm Beach, FL, population 29,884. The median household income there is $32,111 (2000). 68% of the population is black. And they want to use eminent domain to move 20% of their population and build a billion-dollar yacht club/waterfront housing complex. To "bring jobs" to the city. Well, you know, I guess they'll need lots of waiters and janitors at the yacht club.
