Happy Birthday to Us
Posted in Events

Yesterday, we celebrated the one-year anniversary of our blog's launch.  We were planning to get a cake, but remembering back to what my one-year-old looked like after we put a cake in front of him on his first birthday, we decided to commemorate the occasion by preparing a "top 10" list from our blog's first year.

Admittedly, selecting 10 items was not a scientific process, and "top 10" really became "10 posts I can describe in a single short sentence," but in any event, here it is, the Top 10 Things You've Learned if You've Been Following Our Eminent Domain Blog (by the way, I find it helps if you channel David Letterman when you read them):

Number 10: Giving out $5,000 can be complicated.

Number 9: Appraisers don't always listen well.

Number 8: Some rules cry out to be broken.

Number 7: Avatar may (or may not) be about eminent domain.

Number 6: Some anniversaries are best forgotten. 

Number 5: De facto takings look a lot like wide-spread conservation.

Number 4: Not all energy discussions involve the Gulf Oil Spill.

Number 3: Beach-front property isn't all its cracked up to be.

Number 2: Changes in the law don't always come from the courts.

And the Number 1 thing you've learned if you've been following our eminent domain blog for the last year: Goodwill and relocation sound like different things, but maybe they aren't.
