There was a well done story on the New London CT eminent domain case on NPR's Morning Edition this morning. Yet another case of a the use of eminent domain to promote economic development projects and increased tax base at the expense of the current residential property owners rights.
When an audio link to the NPR story is available, I will post it in this thread. In the meantime, here's a column on the topic from George Will.

A note to lurkers in Connecticut: This would be a really good time to register and join the discussions.
