But it takes so little bait to attract a "liberal" ...


Regarding the article, I too wonder what's next for some of these poor folks.* In fairness to them, lenders have worked hard to help them make their bed, and those lenders will rightly deserve some of the pain ... though their lives will not be shattered as will the borrowers.* I've seen folks going through business and personal bankruptcy, and it is painful.
