For shame, Eric Flowers! Asking at the end of your article on foreclosures if anybody has a match is dangerously inflammatory. While it maybe true that if every foreclosee burned down his house, the banks would very quickly stop foreclosing and start mortgage modifications instead, arson is against the law and carries heavy prison sentences, whereas selling subprime mortgages and bundling them or selling second mortgages to folks who can't pay for them is evidently perfectly legal and carry no such penalties, however immoral such actions may be.
