HOME FORECLOSURES SOAR HIGHER THAN AMY WINEHOUSE

“They just put it up on blocks and hauled it off. Fucking bank’s an asshole.”

Home foreclosures surged up 57% in January. If this many people keep losing their homes, it’s only a matter of time before there’s an armed standoff at a suburban 4 bedroom-4bath 2 car garage, ambitious middleclass palace squeezed onto a quarter acre. Now, I’m not encouraging anyone to put a round of buckshot through a soulless mortgage collector’s knee, but I am saying, if I’m on that jury, anyone who takes up arms to protect his home from a shady loan officer walks free.

We’ve already got latch key kids; let’s try to avoid a generation of car key kids.
