Housing Crisis? What You Talking 'Bout Willis?

There was a great article in yesterday's Times Sunday Magazine about the national foreclosure crisis focusing in Cleveland.

"In the ensuing years, the city's real estate was transformed into an Alice-In-Wonderland-like landscape. Local officials began keeping track of foreclosed homes by placing red dots on large wall maps. Some corners of the map, like Slavic Village, are now so pack with red dots they look like puddles of blood. The first question outsiders ask is, Where has everyone gone?" .... "The county has lost nearly 100,000 people over the past seven years, the largest exodus in recent memory outside of New Orleans Parish."
