    Normally I'm on the "left" side of the court, but I'm horrified by this decision. So my local government can now decide to seize my house and use it not for public purposes, but to give to the Hilton family so they can build a hotel on it. I haven't been so digusted by a supreme court ruling since Bush v. Gore.
