Kelo Land to Go for Govt Use
Here's an irony: after all the constitutional furor in the Kelo fight, it looks likely that the land being taken by eminent domain will be used for a national museum dedicated to the Coast Guard.
That this is a surprise just illustrates the point that none of the land in question was ever being taken from homeowners to be given to any specific private company, but for a broad-ranging government redevelopment corporation, which in this case includes a number of government entities.
