The Museum of Just Desserts
In a particularly snarky (and timely) move, a developer in New Hampshire has asked for permission to develop a hotel, museum and cafe at 34 Cilley Hill Road in the town of Weare.
The main catch is that particular address is the site of Supreme Court Justice David Souter.
The would-be developer, Logan Darrow Clements, said he is entirely serious about the plan, devised in response to Souter's vote in the case of Kelo v. City of New London, Conn. The case, decided last week, allows city governments to seize land from private parties and give it to another private party for development, if the transfer "will generate greater tax revenue or other economic benefits when the land is developed by the new owner."
Clements' proposed development would include the Lost Liberty Hotel, featuring the Just Desserts Cafe and a public museum dedicated to an exhibit about the loss of freedom in America.
