It's like a bad nightmare (are there good nightmares?)  It looks like First Horizon is cutting 1,500 mortgage positions.  Option One is cutting 575 additional positions.  This is just after Countrywide announed cutting 10-12,000 jobs.  In fact, Bloomberg predicts that 100,000 jobs will be cut...a...
This article from earlier this morning (CNNMoney.com) caught be by surprise.  It seems that the Fed and many other experts were very nonchalant about the mortgage crises in the beginning.  They've since realized it's a pretty big deal.  So this article made me wonder if history is repeating itsel...
I was curious to see whether any Idaho towns landed on the Top 100 places to live, according to CNNMoney for 2007.  Check out the link here.  http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2007/moneymag/0707/gallery.BPTL_top_100.moneymag/index.html  I'm left wondering where is Boise, Idaho Falls or Twin Falls?  ...

It was with pleasure that I viewed this video clip from Bill Clinton's interview with Larry King, to be aired tonight on CNN.  King asked Clinton about the Larry Craig matter.  As a student and teacher of public speaking, it was very encouraging to see how careful Clinton was in answering some of...
The convicted (because he pled guilty) Senator Craig might not resign after all.  That's the latest from Idaho.  And yes, it matters since we're all affected by the things a U.S. Senator does and/or can do (i.e., passing legislation or spending our hard earned tax dollars).  Here's the last post ...
