Rational response to Kelo? Perhaps . . .

Who knows? At least the Virginia General Assembly is coming down on the right side of this issue. Remember, if the NYT says Kelo is good, then it must be bad. This is how federalism was intended to operate--the US Constitution sets the floor, and the states are free to act in their own best interests. Unfortunately, in too many fields (particularly criminal procedure), states have simply abandoned any stricter rules than those permitted by the US Constitution. Let's hope that's not the case now.
