Here’s a headline designed to cause cognitive dissonance among the entire membership of "Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn" and most of their allies. I can’t wait to watch Chuck Barron’s Head explode when he tries to process this:
"California Town Uses Eminent Domain to Block Wal-Mart"- New York Sun, May 9, 2006.
Bertha Lewis was probably pleased. Marty Markowitz probably had mixed feelings.
Bertha, what will you do when Bruce Ratner tries to open a Wal-Mart?
