    GREAT photos and accompanying text! but it wasn’t clear that one had to click on the photos to get a story line – maybe some kind of button or hint??

    Foreclosure hurts those families and all the neighborhoods that they lived in – neighborhoods that were turning around or had at least a chance are slipping into greater poverty and disrepair – not just in our city but across the nation. WHEN will our government pay attention to ALL of the people?(not just “corporations”, Mitt, my friend!!)
