File This Under Extreme Public-Private Partnership Waste

Fort Trumbull wasteland

Also known as Shame on YOU New London!

In the wake of Pfizer closing research facilities ... what transpired with the takings in Kelo vs. New London is a very sad chapter in our country's history indeed.

And now after all the pain and heartache placed upon those families who were literally thrown out of their homes - Pfizer is abandoning its New London offices and deciding what to do with the property it gained in the infamous Kelo v. New London land-grab!

Can this saga be any more disgusting?
Adding insult to injury is a gross understatement.

Those properties should be given back to the people who lived there and they should be made whole.

Please read more here ... as I am just too incensed to write anything more.

No, this is a GOOD thing. Had the Fort Trumbull project turned into the big rich project originally envisioned, future city planners would take that as encouragement to do it again. So I'm glad it's now an urban wasteland, I'm glad Pfizer's pulling out, and I'm especially glad New London's in a deep financial hole because of this. Bed, made, lie.

Jennifer... You know what... you are right and looking at it in that way now I totally agree. Thanks for a different perspective.
