The Institute for Justice team from Virginia pulled up in a white limo that was longer than a public hearing. Near a table stacked with "Eminent Domain Superhero" T-shirts, a big smoking grill was spread with rows of plucked chickens.
I wonder if that's what Norwood city leaders saw when they looked at the neat little middle-class houses that lined the streets next to Rookwood mall: rows of plucked chickens.
