Some lively back-and-forth between Messrs. Inspector and Flibbertigibbet on urbanism, and Mr. Van Horn's recent cable company travails got me thinking on the role of public roads in government's ability to exert control over private property. This is mildly unfortunate, however, as I am far too busy at the moment to be thinking about such things. So I've popped it in the oven on a low roast for now, and later tonight I should have a tender, juicy morsel for you.
