"omeone has made what appears to be a tongue-in-cheek pitch to take over Justice David Souter's New Hampshire farmhouse and turn it into a hotel...The justification for such an eminent domain action is that our hotel will better serve the public interest as it will bring in economic development and higher tax revenue...."

"The letter dubbing the project the 'Lost Liberty Hotel'..said it would include a dining room called the 'Just Desserts Cafe' an a museum focused on the 'loss of freedom in America.'"
