Stealing from Nuns

A Thomas Sowell piece from last year which puts into perspective the machinations of the Environmentally Correct in the Bay Area.

The Left obviously has no shame stealing from nuns.

Money Quote:

[Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District (MROSD)] officials feared negative impacts on the environment from convent development.

We all know those nuns were going to build those ugly Christian buildings, like, oh, Notre Dame, St. Peter's and even those Russian Orthodox monstrosities (I find the Trinity Cathedral especially appalling).

We all prefer government buildings (Greg, a real cheap shot -- Ed.).

Anyone who knows anything about Bay Area real estate valuations knows that $300,000 for 165 acres (yes, that's ~$1900 per acre) in the beautiful and upscale Woodside area is larceny.

The very definition of shameless, greedy plunder.
