262. it's always been ominous.
I don't know too many local governments that are going to be willing to sign people's land away to build a Wal-Mart or something though. I know in my area recently there was a debate about whether or not a mag-lev train line should be built. The argument was that it would run too close to a housing plant, and therefore, it seems to be going nowhere. Honestly, I could care less if a few people lose their homes in order to make a new mass transit system come into my area. The amount of money it would take to build it, and the jobs it would create are worth more to this area than a bunch of lousy 400K dollar homes that these people already can't afford.

So, in my opinion, if a few semi-well off people would lose their "unlanded" estate, or some less fortunate people their home, it's worth it as long as something meaningful and useful is being entered into the community.
