Don't mourn for the Lost Liberty Hotel

So it looks like seizing Justice Souter's house to build the Lost Liberty Hotel, using the Kelo decision as a precedent, is not going to go on the ballot in Souter's hometown next month.

I suppose this is a loss for Just Deserts, but you could think of it as a blow for freedom.

After all, the message is: Just because the Supreme Court says it's constitutional doesn't make it constitutional. It was an illegal thing to do to the people of New London, Conn., and it would have been an illegal thing to do to Souter. Somebody out there "gets" it, even if they don't quite realize it.
