And speaking of blight

The  Los Angeles Times
has a national overview of the wildfire of state legislation to trim eminent domain power in the aftermath of a Supreme Court ruling in a Connecticut case. The Kelo case (its losing plaintiff shown here) cleared the way for taking of private property for private projects. Arkansas's TIF law allows precisely that -- with appropriate compensation, of course, and only to address "blight." But it is so loosely defined that almost anything, including undeveloped property, qualifies.
