A regular reader often sends me interesting stuff by email. Even though I rarely make use of the stuff on my blog, (well, sometimes I do!) he keeps sending and I keep looking it over. Tonight he sent me something interesting enough to share with readers.
There is a huge bankruptcy case in New York, so huge it may be the largest bankruptcy case in American history; the simultaneous Chapter 11 filings of 51 residential mortgage companies. Normally this kind of geeky mortgage stuff is handled by bloggers like Jeff Skrenes (Hawthorne Hawkman) or Behind The Mortgage Dot Com but...
...sometimes the most qualified blogger isn't the one who gets there first. I'll be happy to hang up this pinata and let others whack it with a stick if they feel inclined. Check out the article, linked above. I won't linger over this. I have crime to write about.
I will, however, replicate the most interesting part of the article below, in closing:

Does any of this, any of it at all, have an impact on North Minneapolis or is this an "East Coast issue?" Does ANYBODY see a company on this list with mortgages held locally? Are the rather hyperbolic assertions of Marinka Peschmann based in reality? Is this case literally big enough to effect the United States economy?
Geez, I was just starting to feel like things are looking up for me, personally, since that LAST recession.
