#1 It's called a 'nail house', from the nail that sticks out. What happens is the government allocates sufficient money to buy the homeowner out at a fair price and then the various levels of management all steal a chunk, and there's hardly any left by the time it gets to the homeowner. Usually they send thugs to burn the place down or hospitalize the resident.

#2 Usually we offer a subpar price and if it is rejected, apply emminent domain and take it anyway.

If only the Czar knew, he'd do something.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
