Much in the news is word that our U.S. economy has been dealt a heavy blow by the mortgage failures both of people who were sold such that they could not afford and those who have been hit by misfortunes ranging from lost jobs to major health problems.

But more tragically individuals who acted in good faith have had their lives devastated by their investment of monies in a home that is now being taken away from them and sold to new bidders — if any are so foolish to buy in this horrendous housing market. The lenders, of course, are now protecting themselves by closing down mortgage credit generally.
