At the same time, I am a little leery of the "anti-foreclosure" movement because a lot of people bought too much house in the bubble and they deserve to take the hit for their mistakes. But so do the big banks, and so far all they have gotten is record bonuses paid for on the backs of taxpayers. And this particular couple seems to have been blameless.

The ultimate culprit is a culture of debt, and until that is changed the economy won't heal properly. But it's great to see somebody upholding the law...something banks seem to feel they are above these days.
