    The use of Eminent Domain for a stadium is complete BS. If DC and Akridge don’t come to terms, I hope Akridge sues the [email protected]% out of DC and wins.
    I think the “community” would be better served with a Trader Joe’s on each of the Mayor and DC Councilors residences. Or if AutoZone on H Street were razed for more condos. Or if East Capitol Street were turned into a pedestrian promenade.
    This should not stand!!!!
