Redefining Blight

New York City's overbearing, paternalistic, arrogant, billionaire Mayor has weighed in on the eminent domain debate and has, surprise, surprise, surprise, landed on the wrong side.

Mayor Bloomberg is stepping up his campaign to prevent lawmakers in Albany and Washington from restricting the city's power to seize private property for redevelopment.

In recent weeks, Mr. Bloomberg has traveled to Washington to meet with members of Congress on the issue. He also convened a group of 100 Manhattan-based political donors for a lunch at which he handed out a wallet card of priorities, including "Eminent Domain - Oppose legislation that would cripple affordable housing and responsible re-development (like Times Square)."

"responsible re-development". That might be the most the most creative name for state-sponsored theft. A New York Sun editorial challenges hizzoner on the approaching Columbia University development in Harlem.
