    Hey Gobblesque: That’s just freakin sick.

    You are missing the more ominous message here. I’m looking for the link but the numbers came out recently that the borrowers with excellent credit – the people who actually pay their mortgages on time – the number of those borrowers who fell behind on their mortgage doubled in March. That means that the people propping up Freddy Mac are falling down.

    This suicide by a guy who everyone says was a happy family man and a good guy happening after that small tip of what is probably an iceberg scale statistic should send a chill down your spine. What did he see coming? I wouldn’t be dancing on his grave just yet.

    What a wimp. Darwin was right. The strong survive, the spineless perish.

    Yes, sad. The human element is tragic. Today’s coverage makes it sound like this was a good guy who got overwhelmed, not a greedhead worried about getting ruined or feeling guilt. We’ll probably find out more eventually……

    ….but I understand Squathole’s hostility. As a representative of the institution, he inspires a certain amount of scorn and contempt which is rewarded by his suicide.

    What miserable creatures we all are.
