And Now, For a Musical Version of Kelo

No, folks, we are not making this up. The New Haven Independent brings the dispatch that somebody performing under the name “Swamp Yankee” has set the Kelo story to music and is performing his composition on a guitar. It is also available on tape. See Lucy Gelman, Swamp Yankee vs. Eminent Domain, New Haven Independent, Jan. 22, 2016.

We hope you will forgive us if for all our distaste for the Supreme Court’s wretched performance in that case, we’ll skip that musical comp0sition, even though it illustrates the depth of the popular revulsion over the holding in that case.

So have at it folks.
