"I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use -- silence, exile, and cunning." -- James Joyce
Fair Market Value
Some fogged up fellow thinks eminent domain seizures involve the payment of "fair market value" to the person whose property was taken. What rubbish. There is no meaning whatsoever to "fair market value" except what someone will willingly exchange, and eminent domain is only used when the owner is not willing to sell at the state's price, i.e., the seizee never gets fair market value.
