I’m somewhat surprised — and even pleased — that Logan Darrow Clements’ proposal to use eminent domain to transform Justice Souter’s house into a hotel is receiving positive press from the mainstream media. Various people I respect (e.g. Gus) have expressed qualms in various fora about the proposal and its author. While I wouldn’t wish to endorse the author, I do regard the proposal as a brilliant way of showing the concrete, practical results of the majority opinion authored by David Souter, namely that no man is safe in his ownership of his home any longer. It’s quite just that David Souter ought to feel the effects of that loss of liberty sooner rather than later.
I am wrong? If so, I’m sure that the errors of my ways will be revealed for all to see in the comments.
