New York City Invokes Eminent Domain to Acquire New Jersey

Oh, if it were only true!

"The Supreme Court decision makes it easier for us to justify this course of action in the name of economic development," said Bloomberg, "although actually we could easily have made the case that taking over New Jersey would be analogous to condemning a blighted property. I mean, come on. Have you been there lately?"


P.S. While you're there, could you please erect the mother of all walls along the Jersey coast so we don't have to see (and in the event of a nuclear disaster--FEEL the effects of...) this?
