solution to the mortgage crisis

Times are tough in America.  Irresponsible lending practices have led to a record number of bad mortgages and home foreclosures.  None of the presidential candidates seem to have a clue on how to keep families in their homes.  People are getting evicted left and right, no one knows what to do.  However, 90 year old Addie Polk of Akron, Ohio may have found a loophole…

The generous folks over at Fannie Mae have decided to forgive the loan taken out by Ms. Polk on account of the fact that instead of allowing herself to be evicted, she shot herself twice in the upper body. A spokesperson for the bank said, “We’re going to forgive whatever outstanding balance she had on the loan and give her the house, given the circumstances, we think it’s appropriate.”

There you have it America, your solution to the mortgage crisis.
