Be wary of eminent domain

Following up on Mayor White's State of the City address yesterday, Owen Courreges has some thoughts on gentrification and Mayor White's plan to foreclose on tax-delinquent properties, and even use eminent domain if necessary, in order to build more affordable housing in six areas near downtown.

After our experience with $AFEclear, I think it's safe to say this is something to keep an eye on. A sharp eye.
