Quicklink: Much Ado About The Monitor Museum

NYTIMESsc

As it would happen I bumped into George and Janice yesterday while running errands. They are lovely people and are very dedicated to making this museum happen. We talked about the recent problems the Monitor Museum is facing. Namely: the threat of eminent domain. In this tome they make a very salient point: why are they being threatened with eminent domain when a number of much larger (and quite frankly: more important) parcels have yet to be acquired? The CitiStorage site (for which its owners are demanding a draconian sum*) immediately comes to mind. Why hasn’t eminent domain been invoked there? These are all very good questions.

In any case, do give this a read and draw your own conclusions Garden Spotters!

*$200,000,000 if what was said on this video (skip to 8:03) is to be believed.
