Group attempting to exercise eminent domain over Souter's farm

This is a really funny story from yesterday's Concord Monitor (linked here since the Monitor will take it's articles off after a while, I think) that some wealthy Californians have petitioned the selectmen of Weare, New Hampshire in an attempt to exercise private eminent domain over Souter's farm and convert it into a hotel. Surely that will be of greater economic benefit town, they say.

I love crazy shit like that. They say they want to have a copy of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged in every room. They are not, however, associated with the Free State Project, a group of radical libertarians that have all committed to moving here within a certain number of years.

The truth of the matter is that Souter only lives there half the year anyway. The hotel could put that property to better use. Where they do they get the idea that he's so attached to the property anyway? He doesn't strike me as the sentimental type. I'm sure he could be another piece of land in the area, or anywhere else he wanted.
