From coast -to-coast your rights are ghosts
I note that President Bush has directed that power companies can take your property if they need to run a transmission line through it. Where? Well, to start, in just a few backwoods areas:

"The Bush administration yesterday designated much of the mid-Atlantic region a "National Interest Electric Transmission Corridor," which will allow the federal government to supersede local and state authorities to approve energy projects that might otherwise have been rejected" says one comment from The New York Sun...elsewise:

New York

West Virginia

Pennsylvania: Pa. loses power to feds in energy transmission corridor fight

Southern California and Arizona The Southwest corridor includes most of Southern California, including San Diego County and part of southwest Arizona. The designation gives federal regulators authority to approve transmission projects even if state officials reject the proposals."

Remember which party was for "states rights?" Now we hear: "We're from the government, and we're here to help you."
