"I'm sorry!"

Real Estate Sales Representative with for real estate results in the Tri-Cities.

I thought ActiveRainer's would be all over this Kelo v. New London property rights case news update...


Then Justice Palmer turned to Susette (Kelo), took her hand and offered a heartfelt apology. Tears trickled down her red cheeks. It was the first time in the 12-year saga that anyone had uttered the words "I'm sorry."
Palmer should be sorry. So should U.S. Supreme Court Justices John Paul Stevens, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, David Souter, and Anthony Kennedy, whose five votes upheld Palmer’s erroneous judgment and put the final nail in the coffin. http://reason.com/blog/2011/09/19/connecticut-supreme-court-just

I do recall telling Susette I was sorry," he wrote. "But I was expressing my regret for what she had gone through. I would not want the reader to think that I was apologizing for my vote, which I was not doing." http://www.courant.com/news/opinion/hc-op-justice-palmer-apology-20110918,0,5393647.story

In the U.S.A. what happened is called eminent domain, and in Canada we call it expropriation. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on personal property rights, so please share your comments. Thanks.
