On Friday most mortgage rates went up 1-2% to near 8% at all the banks
that will still be in business next year. And you're going to need a 10%
down payment no matter what. That's only $170k for house down the road
from me, nothing a recent college grad doesn't have laying around, so
housing will be just fine. What, you say the small shitty house isn't
worth $1.7 million anymore, why not?!?! Hahahahahaha.

And if your credit score isn't perfect, Wachovia stopped making loans to
you - no more alt-A. Smart folks over there. How many mortgage brokers

I figure. Should improve traffic considerably. Here is a preview:

Oh, and if your money is in a hedge fund, get it the F' out _NOW_, hedge
funds are starting to not let you withdraw money - a trick learned from
PayPal no doubt. Saves them from having to say the fund is bankrupt and
use the three most deadly words currently know to exist... mark to market.
