Slangin' coke, and other easy tips for fixing the mortgage crisis

Here in Cleveland, the nation’s foreclosure crisis is not news. We’ve been dealing with predatory lenders and abandoned houses for so long, the visitors bureau has even started featuring them in brochures: Slavic Village -- your boarded window to the world! Of course, being Cleveland, the political "Land of Opportunity, Presuming You're a Moron and Have a Very Familiar Last Name," we still haven’t figured out how to fix the problem. But a fascinating new survey, reported in one of the world's leading newspaper's, is suggesting viable ways we, as a nation, can pay off our crippling sub-prime mortgages. So if you find yourself killing time before a sheriff’s sale, these helpful ideas should lift your spirits. -- Lisa Rab
