Just Desserts Café

Looks like it has not taken long forsome enterprising individual, this being one Logan Darrow Clements, has filed an application to build a hotel at 34 Cilley Hill Road. This address should be very familiar to Justice David H. Souter, since it is his home. Here is an excerpt from the article.

"On Monday June 27, Logan Darrow Clements, faxed a request to Chip Meany the code enforcement officer of the Towne of Weare, New Hampshire seeking to start the application process to build a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road. This is the present location of Mr. Souter's home.
Clements, CEO of Freestar Media, LLC, points out that the City of Weare will certainly gain greater tax revenue and economic benefits with a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road than allowing Mr. Souter to own the land.

The proposed development, called "The Lost Liberty Hotel" will feature the "Just Desserts Café" and include a museum, open to the public, featuring a permanent exhibit on the loss of freedom in America. Instead of a Gideon's Bible each guest will receive a free copy of Ayn Rand's novel "Atlas Shrugged."

Clements indicated that the hotel must be built on this particular piece of land because it is a unique site being the home of someone largely responsible for destroying property rights for all Americans.

"This is not a prank" said Clements, "The Towne of Weare has five people on the Board of Selectmen. If three of them vote to use the power of eminent domain to take this land from Mr. Souter we can begin our hotel development.""

A rather delicious irony. But, Clements does have a valid point here. After all such a development project would most definitely produce considerably more tax revenue than Souter's home would. This was one of the arguements presented by New London in 'Kelo vs. New London'. It was also one of the justifications sighted in the majority opinion. It will be most interesting tosee if the Selectmen of Weare have the cujonés to apporve this application and begin conemnation proceedings under eminant domain. - Sailor
