A community on the west side of Chicago is in the same league as the much more affluent Lincoln Square neighborhood because they're both facing issues of eminent domain. The Bench had this video in their sidebar. Tom Mannis has covered the issue of eminent domain on his blog over time. Even provided his own video on the situation in Lawndale. I posted that at Illinoize.
BTW, according the Newsalert the incoming Governor of New York David Patterson is no friend of eminent domain. Of course if only there was a similar advocate in Illinois.
