Now eminent domain is the topic for high school debates in Florida. Unthinkable, as far as I know, pre-Kelo.
I myself was a high school debater in Florida less than a decade ago, and eminent domain didn't exactly dominate discussion. (I once spent a session arguing that Sam Cooke was "better" than The Beatles. He was.) So the event recounted in the linked article is a step in the right direction, to be sure.
