Having Fun With Kelo

A Free Star Media release claiming to be serious reports that a petition has been filed with the Towne of Weare, New Hampshire to seize by emminent domain Justice Souter's home for the purpose of building a hotel.
On Monday June 27, Logan Darrow Clements, faxed a request to Chip Meany the code enforcement officer of the Towne of Weare, New Hampshire seeking to start the application process to build a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road. This is the present location of Mr. Souter's home.
The hotel would "benefit" the town, and has a great name.
Clements, CEO of Freestar Media, LLC, points out that the City of Weare will certainly gain greater tax revenue and economic benefits with a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road than allowing Mr. Souter to own the land. The proposed development, called "The Lost Liberty Hotel" will feature the "Just Desserts Café" and include a museum, open to the public, featuring a permanent exhibit on the loss of freedom in America.
This may be my favorite part.
Instead of a Gideon's Bible each guest will receive a free copy of Ayn Rand's novel "Atlas Shrugged."

The guy claims to be serious.
"This is not a prank" said Clements, "The Towne of Weare has five people on the Board of Selectmen. If three of them vote to use the power of eminent domain to take this land from Mr. Souter we can begin our hotel development."

Sometimes snark makes the best point.

I don't know why someone hasn't done it already [hint hint] - get a bunch of bloggers to throw in, form an LTD and make it a business proposition to "transfer" the fab five's property, anywhere it can be siezed. We could put up coffee carts or something. I'd help with a business plan, etc. You could be the legal eagle who gets our "permits" in order, and gets the town boards to see things our way. Just don't tell them about my other proposition for adding to Kelo until after the ink is dry.

It'd be a public good! I promise!
