No surprise, and a new newspaper for Lakewood

Joni Mitchell expressed should not be surprised about the Kelo decision. Any existing paradises in the US that are adjacent to any megashopping centers have some paving coming to them soon. In Ohio at least, plans to charge people a dollar and a half (or more) to see the trees in the tree museum (aka, State Parks) was shelved for now. Paradise aside, anyone who bought a house with a nice view had better hope no one richer is eyeing you land and thinking of buying up a local government into declaring it "Blighted".

Speaking of Lakewood, The Lakewood Observer is Lakewood, Ohio's newest newspaper. There is an existing weekly in my town, although it leaves a bit to be desired.
