Courtesy of the recent Supreme Court ruling on eminent domain, the Lost Liberty Hotel may someday stand in place of Justice Souter's personal residence in New Hampshire.
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 is not a prank. 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."
TWC is going out on a limb here to predict that this is just a very pleasant dream but will never happen. That's because Justice Souter is one of those politically well-connected people that Justice O'Connor was referring to when she said this:
The beneficiaries are likely to be those citizens with disproportionate influence and power in the political process
As Ever, TWC

UPDATE: Weare Code Enforcement Officer Charles Meany Responds:
Am I taking this seriously? But of course. In lieu (sic) of the recent Supreme Court decision, I would imagine that some people are pretty much upset. If it is their right to pursue this type of end, then by all means let the process begin.
