Eminent Domain + Serenity Quiz!

Politics: I saw in the news that there was an initiative up for a vote in Weare, New Hampshire about whether the town should boot Justice David Souter, a Weare resident, from his home to make way for a hotel. This was put forth by a protest group in response to the Supreme Court's vote last year to allow legislatures to be able to more easily force people to move, to make way for public development.

I don't personally like that Supreme Court vote, but I do like the way Weare, NH residents handled the protest group's proposal. They rejected the proposal and replaced it with an initiative to improve Weare's own eminent domain laws.

Just because the Supreme Court gives you the right to do something doesn't mean you have to take undue advantage of it.

And just because you're pissed off at someone doesn't give you the right to come up with proposals for legislation whose intent is clearly retaliatory rather than necessry. I like the fact that the more sensible members of the town wanted to handle this situation the right way.

Writing: I need to work on The Boy from the Sea today.

I suspect I'm probably more like Kaylie, but hey! Pretty cool. (g)
