Thanks pfor nothing...

For those of us that still believe in private property rights, Kelo vs. New London, the case where the Supreme Court ruled that government could seize a person's home for almost any reason, as long as the seizure resulted in more money for the governments coffers, remains one of the most horrible decisions the court has ever handed down. And that is saying a lot.

That was in 2005, and since then, the town of New London, Connecticut has torn down the houses of Suzette Kelo and her neighbors. The town then gave the property, along with a fist full of abatements to Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Inc., which in turn built a research and development center on the lots.

Pfizer announced Monday that it is closing the facility.

Do you think there might be a chance that the New London Town Council, and the Supreme Court, and Pfizer will offer those homeowners an apology?

Neither do I.
